Brian Conaway is the Colorado-based inventor of the RideTight adaptive seat belt positioners and CEO of RideTight, LLC. RideTight is a small product that can fit in the palm of one’s hand, but provides a big leap in seat belt security. It has outperformed traditional “booster” seats in booster-seat crash tests. Brian also has many years of new product innovation, development and sales under his belt for Fortune 500 companies. Some of the companies he has innovated with and provided products for include Home Depot, Target, K-Mart, Sears, WalMart, QVC, Costco and Ace Hardware.
A new business resource targeted particularly to assist inventors, innovators, and entrepreneurs, the JeffCo Innovators Workshop is hosted by the City of Golden with support from the Jefferson County Economic Development Corporation. The Workshop offers advice, inspiration, and support to new business “start-ups” and entrepreneurs and seeks to assist those companies that wish to introduce a new product to the market. The monthly public meetings typically include an educational presentation on some aspect of starting a new business or bringing a new invention to market, a networking session, an advice and sharing period, and announcements of opportunities for business help and support within Jefferson County. A not-for-profit currently coordinated with volunteers from the IX Power Foundation, the organization welcomes local business sponsorships of its meetings and activities.
