Chris Landano

Chris is a patented inventor of Trakbelt360, a tool belt like no other. This was his first invention which took him over 15 years from idea to a sellable product. Along the way, he was ripped off and misled by people who claimed they could help him. Some claim to be “INVENTOR FRIENDLY.” Chris was naïve and trusting of these individuals, resulting in tens of thousands of dollars lost, along with years of delay. During this time, Chris was able to stay laser focused and use his first responder skill set, to survive the many obstacles he faced as an independent inventor.

He not only managed to overcome all the obstacles, and keep moving forward, but he was able to manufacture his invention, get some sales and get the product into the hands of companies for a potential licensing deal. Along the way, he crossed paths with companies and individuals who promised they could help develop his idea and market it to companies who would pay big money for this type of product. All lies and fraudulent tactics to get his money. But thanks to his participation at his local New York City inventors club, which he attended monthly, Chris learned about all the necessary steps on how to bring an idea to market, and most importantly, learned from fellow inventors, very experienced with the invention industry who warned him to “BEWARE” of all the scam companies and their deceitful tactics. “I was misled and scammed by mostly individual consultants. I consider myself lucky compared to all the stories I’ve heard from other inventors scammed for tens of thousands of dollars more than me.

Now Chris is very active within the invention community. He’s an inventor ambassador for the United Inventors Association. He’s an active member of the U.S. Inventor organization. Chris is a cohost for the New York City, Manhattan, and Queens inventor clubs.

Helping people is in my blood. I was a professional rescuer in New York City for over 20 years. What led me to launch Inventor Rescue was hearing all the terrible stories of inventors being lied to and deceived for tens of thousands of dollars by fraudulent companies using the same tactics and schemes. Being an inventor with a professional first responder background from New York City, motivated me to try and make a difference to help new and naive independent inventors not get ripped off by dishonest and misleading companies. Most of the time, the inventor doesn’t realize they were lied to until years after they paid for services.
