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. We encourage you to attend all the meetings you can, because that is where all the connections and friendships are made. 

Where North Florida's Inventors and Innovators Come together.  NFIIG.com. North Florida Inventors/Innovators Social Group.
Our next meeting will be September 30th at 12 noon. Our destination is 3 Independent Drive Jacksonville Florida. 

We will be visiting the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce in Downtown Jacksonville this month. We will learn how the Chamber's JAX Bridges program can benefit Innovators/Inventors and see how what they are doing that is different from existing small business support. 

According the the Chamber......The JAX Bridges program is a simulation that educates entrepreneurs. It creates "many-to-many relationship access" for both vendors and suppliers. We leverage entrepreneurial tools, unique learning strategies, and corporate relationships to deliver on our value proposition. 

Carlton Lamar Robinson ..Senior Director, Entrepreneurial Growth Division will tell us all about their program and how it can benefit the local Innovator/Inventor. 

According to Carlton..."I get to do amazing things for businesses and entrepreneurs in Northeast Florida at a Chamber of Commerce that values entrepreneurship. Through our innovative program #JAXBridges we are assisting with business models, access to capital, and creating business opportunities."  

Lunch is not provided but feel free to bring your own and you can eat during the tour/presentation. 

There is no charge to attend the meeting but you will have to pay for parking. 

I hope to see you there.

Cheers on Inventing/Innovating

Here is a very helpful video if you are interested in the world of innovation.....

Here is one of my favorite quotes which relates to all steps of the Invention/Get to Market process.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan PRESS ON! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."....Calvin Coolidge

Thank you to everyone who continues to talk to and encourage others to attend our group.

Feel free to send interested folks to www.nfiig.com If they sign up in the contact area, I will add them to the list of updates.

Cheers on Inventing/Innovating.
