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.
Go to this link to learn about Josh's organization, US Inventors, and to sign the Inventors Rights petition 
We appreciate you visiting and hope you enjoy the experience.  Whether you are already a member or just want to learn more about IN this is a great place to start.  
To learn more, please review the about us page along with speaker (both past and upcoming) information.  Please also note the time and location of our next meeting, which take place in the evening on the third Wednesday of each month.  
Attending a meeting(s) is by far the best way to learn more about IN and if we are a fit for you.  Our hope is you will find the speaker, program elements and the overall club / network experience to be a place where you can learn more about inventing, connect with others and learn some best practices for success.
