About Us

Brainchild Engineering is a product development company in Northville, Michigan. Since 2016, we've been helping physical product inventors and startups build, launch, and sell their creations. From in-house engineering and prototyping to inventor training and more, we cover the full spectrum of the new product development process.


To honestly and genuinely help inventors launch their products as quickly and easily as possible - and achieve the full success they're capable of.


Sadly, most "invention help" companies are known for helping themselves more than their clients. Over the last 20-30 years, they've earned a reputation as "the place where good ideas go to die". To say that we're different would be an understatement.

  • We don't take advantage of inventor confusion or ignorance

  • We ensure our clients are educated and informed before making any decisions

  • We only craft custom-tailored solutions. We don't sell what isn't helpful.

  • We've provided free training materials to many thousands of inventors, helping them save piles of money and time along their journey.
