North Florida Inventors and Innovators Group
Welcome to North Florida Inventors and Innovators Group. We are Local Innovators who meet monthly to learn from others on how to better innovate and invent.  People join us from all kinds of different industries and from all over North Florida. Many in our group are folks who hold patents, are in the process of patents, or are interested in learning how to proceed on a patent. Many are folks who are interested in how to pursue that idea that they've had for years but aren't sure what steps to take next. We invite all people with similar interests to join us in our pursuit of connections, concepts, and friendships. Feel free to join us and invite your friends. We normally meet the last Wednesday of the month. We will sometimes tour local businesses that relate to innovation and we often host relevant speakers. If you have ever had any interest at all in pursuing a patent or a concept, feel free to come join us. You may make a new friend...likely one who thinks outside the box like you do.
