This will be a real barn-burner of a meeting that will help you start thinking of your business as more than just a novel idea. Make sure that you get here early for the December 9th meeting scheduled from 7 to 9pm. This will be our last meeting in 2009 and a great kick off towards 2010!

We had a real treat at our last meeting and will follow up with another great presentation. This Wednesday, we will be visited by the industrial design team from ROBRADY Design. Robrady Design is a premier prototype facility located in Sarasota and is involved in the creation of some amazing products. They are able to take a simple concept and bring it to life, ready for the market. Additionally, they have a capitalization branch to assist in the the finance and development of new products. Come to this meeting, our only one for the month of November, and connect with some of the best in class when it comes to product design!
Our next meeting won't be until December 9th so don't miss out! We will also finalize the schedule for those who want to present their products on Saturday, 11/14 for Worldwide TV Products. They will evaluate inventor's innovations and may offer to help bring them to the Home Shopping Network.
I look forward to seeing you all at this meeting!
