What's wrong with my code? Can anyone help?

def suggest(product_idea):
    if product_idea < 3 :
        raise ValueError ( "More than 3 characters are required " )
    return product_idea + "inator"

try :
    product_idea = input(" What's your product ? " )
    result = suggest( product_idea )
except ValueError as err :
    print ( "Oh no! That's not a valid value " )
    print ( " ( {} ) ".format(err))
