Founded July 10th, 2004 in Philadelphia, the Nikola Tesla Club is a non for profit organization which has been steadily growing from its Philadelphia and Zemun, Serbia bases. While our primary mission is to preserve and promote the legacy of Nikola Tesla, the late great Serbian-American inventor, we also provide a network for other inventors, product designers, marketers, engineers and investors.
Tesla's life and work are truly fascinating. He was a brilliant inventor who lived lightyears ahead of his time. Join us for our presentations and discussions and learn more about one of history's greatest inventors.
Additionally, we're always looking to diversify our topics. If you have a great deal of knowledge about some aspect of Tesla's life or work (or similar topics) please let us know; knowledgeable guest speakers are always welcome.
While we do provide social and professional networking among inventors, we do not do invention evaluations; for invention evaluations, contact the American Society of Inventors (www.asoi.org, 215-546-6601).
Our mission is to establish and promote the recognition and awareness of Nikola Tesla’s inventions, patents, theories, philosophies, lectures and innovations.

Friends of Tesla Meetings
The Tesla Club, formerly the Friends of Tesla, has been around since the 1950s. It is an invitation only group, made up primarily of scientists. I am not sure whether there are still Tesla Club meetings anywhere, let alone Philadelphia. For more (but limited) information about the Tesla Club, visit http://x-journal.net/.... There are rumors that it has become an underground, secret society, but we would like to open membership for our gatherings to everyone.
Every month we will have an event at a local restaurant that a member suggests. The events will be fun and give people the opportunity to socialize and network with other Tesla fans. The goal is to bring new people in and spread the word about Tesla's life and work. Our first event will be held the third Thursday in October at Balkan Restaurant, and I will provide beverages for the entire group. Please let me know if you will be able to make it, and bring your friends!
