Inventor extraordinaire Michael Hill is the founder of the Iowa Inventors’ Group. The Group is a non-profit group of inventors looking to share ideas about inventions and entrepreneurship. The Iowa Inventors’ Group’s website has all kinds of valuable information, including helpful links for new and seasoned inventors alike. Whether it is getting a patent or marketing a product, the Iowa Inventor’s Group has the answers.
Created to “assist, disseminate and promote services, education and networking opportunities to independent inventors” the Iowa Inventors’ Group meets every second Monday of the month at 7:oo p.m. Most of the meetings are in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but I will do what I can to bring one down to Des Moines. If you are interested in a Des Moines meeting, drop me a line and let me know what month would be best for you.
The Iowa Inventors’ Group is a fantastic opportunity to meet with other inventors and to share ideas about what works and what does not in getting your invention out of your head and into the marketplace. The newly updated website includes a blog , as well as an interesting article from Inventors’ Digest on the Ten Commandments of Invention (you have to like any article that speaks of patent lawyers with such high regard). If you are an inventor, or are even thinking about becoming one, make sure the next Iowa Inventors’ Group meeting is on your calendar.
