History of Inventors Network

Occasionally, day-long conferences have been offered, showcasing several noted speakers and providing breakout sessions to discuss the topics presented or to “network” about other
topics of shared interest. During the restrictive protocols of the COVID pandemic, Inventors Network continued to meet virtually via
online methods.

Currently, Inventors Network has resumed its tradition of monthly meetings, each offering a featured speaker to talk about some topic of interest to inventors, as well as providing an opportunity for members to present and  discuss their inventions confidentially with other members in attendance for valuable feedback. Inventors Network continues to be a resource where inventors and innovators can find reliable information, education and camaraderie that can help them become successful in their pursuits.
