Inventor Two-Part Bootcamp Series
9:00am / FLC Center for Innovation
Inventing is an adventure. Acknowledging Intellectual Property as a personal property has been around since the early 1200's. In the USA, we have given credit to inventors since 1790. The Inventor Bootcamp is open to all inventors and product developers. In this two-part series, the inventor bootcamp will cover several critical phases in the inventing/manufacturing process. The Bootcamp could save novice and seasoned inventors tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary expenses. The Bootcamp is presented by the Southwest Colorado SBDC and The Inventors Roundtable™.   In part 1 of the Inventor Bootcamp we will cover an introduction to the inventing process. There is so much more to the process than just filing a patent or making a product. If making some money rather than just spending your dollars is the goal, then there are some important steps to take and plans to make.   In part 2 we will cover prototyping, product launch and licensing your invention. Now we are getting to the really exciting part: How do you get your product ready to sell? There is a practical way and a really expensive way. You have to decide which one works best for you.
