Then And Now
Inventing In Ohio
Inventing is a complicated process, from conceptualizing, prototyping, financing, manufacturing, marketing, commercializing, selling. We have members that have experience and expertise in all phases. We’ve been there!
Many notable inventors and inventions were from Ohio, and Ohio continues to produce innovators with tremendous potential to better society. Inventors Network is here to help.
“Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.”

Sponsor A Meeting
If you have a service or product for inventors and want to spread the word, consider sponsoring an event or becoming an annual sponsor. You can present your service/product, explain what it does and how it is used. If you are a company looking for new products to make, license or sell, consider becoming a sponsor, as well. Besides aiding the inventor community, your sponsorship can be an advertising/marketing tool for your business.
