What have you started?

I have an invention that is patented, but the prototype doesn't work very well. I'm looking for some funding for additional development work on the protootype, which will be transferable to production models.

What are you starting now?

What helps you stimulate your imagination? What are your favorite books? Movies?

I love to learn of other people's problems, especially when something mechanical is involved.

Each IDEA Cafe ideally has six or seven people who attend a business meeting after the regular meeting once a month and who lead one of the meetings each month. Would you possibly be willing to do this for a group?

I don't read many books, or go to movies. I take several photographic magazines, and am an accomplished photographer.

How did you hear about Small Business Chamber's IDEA Startup Workshops?

Hi: I'm a mechanical engineer, retired from industry in '95, and have sold real estate since. I'm quitting real estate to pursue development of an invention, and maybe take a real job.

What Lou S. is saying about this Meetup Group

John made it clear that it was the type of group where one came only once, to get some ideas. Thus there really is no "group." Too little time was spent on trying to solve problems, and too much on organization. I think a different approach might be to, in the email or website invitation, describe two or three problems that the attendees are trying to solve, and ask the addendees to offer solutions. This would require that people attend more than one meeting, at least once to become acquainted, and to state their problem, and another time to receive potential solutions from the other attendees.
