Our Story

Serial entrepreneur and professional inventor, Chris Hawker, founded Trident with a simple philosophy: “When egos drop away, the best idea wins”. To date, his team of dedicated designers, engineers, videographers, and ping pong fanatics have brought more than 80 inventive products to the market.

Chris began inventing as a teenager, designing and selling aquarium filtration systems. Building on the success of his earlier products, he soon formed a company to work with independent inventors and innovative manufacturers to develop and commercialize a variety of game-changing products. Today, Trident is a full-service invention incubator in the spirit of Edison’s Lab, offering product design, engineering, prototyping, branding, licensing, and consulting.
