Seeding Seedling

Executive Summary

The Massachusetts-based Seedling Enterprises Inc. works with inventors who have ideas but don't know how to make them commercially viable. It selects the most promising ones, develops them, and, rather than forming a company, shops them around to potential device acquirers. Venture capitalists typically aren't interested because their targeted markets are too small. While the products may be niche, the returns, theoretically, can be pretty good--almost as good as VC returns, says co-founder Josh Tolkoff.
