Inventors Connecting with Inventors
 
 
The topic of our 9/18 meeting has changed !

Marc Portney and the 17 presenters have been rescheduled to November 20th. September 18th meeting will still take place.  

Due to last minute travel complications we are rescheduling the speakers and presenters to November 20th.

Please still join us (AT NO CHARGE) for our 9/18 meeting which will instead be an enhanced opportunity to network with fellow inventors and participate in expert round tables to include, patent law, marketing, invention showcase and pitch tips.  We will also have a mini program on national issues that are effecting the independent inventor. 

Marc Portney, American Entrepreneur, Investor and Business Advisor, will be in town November 20th for a special session and rare opportunity for local inventors.

Select members will be presenting their new product idea on stage to Marc and his team with the hope that they will want to license and produce it.

Bunch of Balloons inventor Josh Malone was our speaker in November.  At that time we did a screening of the movie "Invalidated" that highlights his story.  This movie can also be viewed on Amazon Prime and Netflix.   Josh was just awarded 29 million in his patent infringement suit.  See link below for more information.
