The Inventors Network of the Capital Area (INCA) is a non-profit educational organization founded in 1993. Our members are interested in patents, the innovation process, product design, marketing, licensing, prototyping and other product development issues.

Every month we host a meeting with a speaker and time for experienced and beginning inventors to network.The meetings are usually held third Mondays of the month at the Tysons-Pimmit Regional Library in Falls Church, Virginia.

Private sector speakers at past meetings have included successful inventors, and experts in: marketing, branding, patenting, licensing, prototyping, venture capital, and entrepreneurship. Speakers at previous meetings have also included officials from the US Patent & Trademark Office of Independent Inventor Programs and representatives of government small business assistance programs.

Meetings are free and open to the public. We invite you to attend our next meeting to participate in networking over pizza, snacks, and drinks. See the Meetings page on our website for a schedule of upcoming meetings, directions, and more information. If you are interested in speaking at an upcoming meeting, or would like to recommend a speaker, visit our Speakers page.

For more information on INCA see dcinventors.org.

If you are interested in making a prototype of your invention you may also be interested in the CCBC MIT Fab Lab and related CCBC MIT Fab Lab Meetup group. The TechShop Arlington, Virginia is also a great resource for inventors.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
