Grand Rapids Inventor Network Meeting

Online event

The GRIN is taking the summer off from its regular organized monthly meetings and instead hosting a GRIN online networking meeting. This is an informal gathering of local inventors that will come together to talk about the progress of their invention. This is perfect for the inventor that has an idea in their head and does not know where to start to inventors selling product and looking for marketing ideas or anyone in-between. To be safe, this month we will be holding it on Zoom but will try to make it an in-person meeting next month Based in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan, the Grand Rapids Inventors Network is a regional non-profit organization that assists its members to further their creative ideas. It also is a place where inventors, marketers, and creative people can learn and network. GRIN helps inventors help themselves via networking and experience sharing with other inventors. The organization encourages and nurtures the new inventor towards professional growth and product realization. We meet every second Tuesday of each month at: GRIN Product Review GRIN offers a product review session, where members, in a confidential setting, give a 5-minute 'elevator talk' about their invention and then get 10 minutes of feedback from board members and other professionals. These professionals have experience and expertise in product development, marketing, manufacturing, legal options, and as entrepreneurs. Understand that 15 minutes is not enough time. But, the feedback is unbiased, frank, and “brutally honest”. Requirements are that you be a GRIN member and pay a $20 fee for the Product Review. Contact us for more information, if you are interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qATQUUD-fNU
