Meet Jacqueline Fountain, Inventor of Uro-Grip Technology!


“…Don’t let an excuse stand in your way. Dream big and never give up on your dreams.”


Jacqueline Fountain going over the details of her patent drawing.

BHC: We love your invention and wish you the very best with it. Do you have any tips or suggestions for other aspiring inventors?

JF: Yes, three things:

Dream big and never give up on your dreams.

Don’t let an excuse stand in your way.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

BHC: Those are great tips. And if an inventor wants to know how much money they may need to develop a product, what would you tell them?

JF: I would tell them that it really depends on the person and the invention. Raymond and I were able to go from drawing to prototype with only $5,000.

BHC: Thanks for that tip. Is there anything else you want to add?

JF: As a matter of fact, there is: As an inventor, you can find one hundred reasons to say, “No, I can’t do it.” But all it takes is one YES.
