Bruce is Back...

Greetings inventors,
This Wednesday, 6/10/09, our old friend Bruce Elliott is back in town and he will relate what he has discovered about doing business in China and where he sees the best opportunities for manufacturing in the future. Many of you know that Bruce has spent quite a bit of the past few years abroad. He has been having things built and designed in China and has quite a bit to say about the topic. Wednesday, learn from his experiences and you just might walk a shorter path to your goal of getting a product on the market. Bruce will also share some of what he has learned about social media and why you need to leverage it to your advantage. Join us this Week at the Tampa Bay Inventors Council!
