Meet with other inventors and would-be inventors to discuss topics and share experiences in developing products. Subjects of interest include determining whether a proposed product will sell, patenting, prototyping, manufacturing, marketing, licensing, and entrepreneurship.
Each public monthly meeting features an invited speaker on one of the above subjects and opportunity to network.
Other special smaller meetings allow invention ideas to be presented and critiqued under signed confidentiality.
Product ideas tend to be "low-tech" - housewares, tools, toys, pet products, sports and fitness aids, etc.
