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.

Where North Florida's Inventors and Innovators Come together.

The next meeting of the North Florida Inventors/Innovators Group will be held Wednesday October 29th at 12 noon at ULTRATECH at 11542 Davis Creek Court Jacksonville Florida 32256

Please RSVP only if you will be attending.  There is no cost to attend. 
Mark Shaw has kindly agreed to host the North Fla Inventors Group and will be conducting a tour of their facilities and will be giving us insights into what they do. Mark has recently been on Fox News regarding his product that was touted  by Nissan as a "Washless Car". He was also in the Jacksonville Business Journal last week in an article "How a Jacksonville Inventor and Saudi prince are hoping to transform Arabic clothing".
Mark has been attending our meetings and has been a great inspiration to others in the group. I highly recommend you attend if at all possible. 
Here is a little more about UlTRATECH....
Formed in 1993 with over 60 patents, developing over 500 products and 1800 distributors covering 80+ countries. Their main focus has been environmentally focused in markets such as spill containment, spill response, storm water management products, radioactive waste management products, oil-eating microbes and facility protection products. Recently they created the ATG Advanced Technology Group to help be a bridge between inventors, companies, universities and others who have developed game changing technologies. 
ATG technologies offer superhydrophobic coatings, new oxidizing technology for landfills and water technology, fabric treatment to create self-cleaning clothing, clear and durable coatings that create self-cleaning windows, cars, equipment etc.
These are just a few of the items and areas in which they are currently working.
Mark will be giving a brief talk on inventing, entrepreneurship, patents and also demonstrate some of the new ATG technologies. He has had the privilege to give a TED Talk and co-wrote a monthly column for the Jax Biz Journal entitled "Bright Ideas" dealing with patents, ideas, and inventions.  He has started five businesses and loves to create new ideas and inventions.
There will be a food truck on site so that you may purchase lunch during the tour.
If you are an inventor who wants to try and figure out how to get to market....You should be at this meeting. It will be an educational and inspirational visit for all innovators/inventors and we hope you can make it.
Thank you to everyone who continues to talk to and encourage others to attend our group
