Brainstorming I

Hello to all blackatters i have a question as noob still in this forum.

I have a friend who is Inventor has some patented items but he make no money or almost anything from his inventions.

Now has patented an aluminum profile and he is thinking of offering his product directly to a well know firm in europe ( Brico companies ).

I do not think this process would be fast enought or profitable enought for him so my question is:

What would you suggest to do for marketing…
