You have your product idea. You have verified that it solves a consumer/customer problem uniquely versus competitors.  You have determined whether you need to legally protect your invention and how you can do it. 
 
AT OUR MEETING- we will help you REVEW and EVALUATE Whether your invention is ready for Development and what you need to develop your product for market and DECIDE if your invention idea is a GO/NO.  
 

 

Your Board Can Help You

Here at Inventor's Network
we take pride in the concept of
helping our members network with each other
and we strive to create networking possibilities
in the Inventor sphere.

 
Networking can be described as
the gathering of individuals
for the purpose of sharing ideas,
concepts, experiences and advice
as well as it being a mechanism
to find answers to questions within the subject,
in our case "Inventing."
 
Your Board of Directors
encourages you to

seek connections within our organization
to learn as well as share.
 
Our board is available to answer your questions and

Present Your Invention
Would you like to present your invention at our monthly meeting?  Every month we offer our members 5-minute slots for them to present their invention to the group anyway they see fit.  We do suggest your idea be patented or patent pending first and you have discussed this with an attorney.  For more details click here.
