Some local help this Wednesday

Hello Inventors, often we talk about national programs to help inventors or world wide contests that might get your idea noticed.  This week we are playing it a lot closer to home and have invites Kurt Forester of the Pinellas County Economic Department to share the resources we have locally.  Kurt is the Business Assistance Manager for the Small Business Development Center and will do a presentation on services that are available for Inventors.  Find out what programs are free or with a small fee to help you learn what to do and how to do it.  If you don't live in Pinellas, no problem as much of the presentation will relate to resources for all inventors living and inventing in Florida.  Make plans to join us Wednesday, July 11th from 7-9 pm and learn to access the resources you need to take your idea to market!  See you there!  Wayne
