Hear how a successful local inventor - Dana Knowles, the current INCA Treasurer and former President - recently licensed her product - "Hanging Shower Caddy" - to Grand Fusion Housewares! Through her perseverance and determination, and some help from an organized approach to getting in front of licensees - Dana was able to develop professional and productive relationships with numerous companies, and ultimately land a licensing deal - on a product that is not likely to be patented!

Her journey to get to this point is fascinating, and includes many lessons about life, and the challenges of being an independent inventor.

Don't miss this chance to learn from a local independent inventor about her path to retail success! And you'll be amazed at where her journey started! Don't miss this opportunity to learn about how you, too, may be able to take this journey.
