Inventors Meeting October 26th

So you think you have a great idea for an invention but what are chances that anyone else thinks it is any good? What if you had a tool to figure out what companies might think about your product before you showed it to them? You only have one chance to make a first impression so shouldn’t you be prepared before you make the call?

On Wednesday, October 26tfh, TBIC will be joined, via Skype, by Patrick Raymond to talk about a diagnostic system he created called the InventionScore®, a method to measure the value of your IP and help inventors make better deals when presenting to companies for investment or licensing.

Patrick served from 2008 to 2010 as Executive Director of the United Inventors Association and founded a Manhattan inventors group in 2007. He spent a decade as an adman on Madison Avenue and became an accidental inventor, entrepreneur, new product judge, and public speaker for the independent inventor community. His unique 5-pillar InventionScore® program is recognized as a powerful, predictive and practical methodology for inventors who want to find a quick and affordable path to landing a deal. A high InventionScore® means you have bargaining power because you are “deal-ready”. A low InventionScore® shows how and where to improve before presenting to any company.

Join us at the next TBIC meeting, Wednesday 10/26/2011 from 7-9 pm, Hosted by the Tampa Bay Innovation Center at 7887 Bryan Dairy Road in Largo, FL . Suite 220, at the top of the green staircase. Learn if the InventionScore® can help you!

TBIC meeting 10/12/2011

Considering that we haven’t had an open meeting for a while, this Wednesday we will not have a speaker but will instead concentrate on working on inventor projects. Joe Navarro will help evaluate inventor’s projects to help determine best approaches for manufacture and materials. Michel Mansfield will share his advice with other inventors to help them determine their next steps and marketing approach. We will also have time for general questions on inventing so if you have a project that you are stuck on, this meeting will be a great opportunity to work with other inventors and make some headway. If you missed seeing Jim Debetta or Stephen Key at our previous meetings, we will have those videos available too. This will be a great opportunity to catch up and discuss your project so make plans to join us on Wednesday, October 12th from 7-9 pm.
