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.
The North Florida Inventors and Innovators Social Group will be meeting at River City Brewery on August 26th at 12 noon at 835 Museum Circle Jacksonville Florida.
Please RSVP if you will be attending. There is no cost to attend however since River City Brewery does not charge us for the room, they do require that all in attendance must purchase lunch. 

This is probably one of the most important meetings we as the North Florida Inventors/Innovators Group have ever had...Please do your best to attend if at all possible. Our rights to protect our patents and IP may depend on it. 

Our speaker Randy Landreneau is a former President of the Tampa Bay Inventors Council and the Founder of Independent Inventors of America....which includes inventor groups nationwide. Randy has been heavily involved in efforts to stop our politicians from passing legislation that would effectively destroy the ability of Independent Inventors to protect their inventions from theft. These rights, so brilliantly created by the Founders of America are the basis of the exceptional level of American Innovation. These rights are a key difference between America and the rest of the world. 

Many inventors just assume that our Constitution will continue to protect their rights. Randy will explain what some Mega-Corporations are trying to get passed right now that would make it virtually impossible for an inventor with valuable intellectual property to protect it. 
If you are thinking that maybe the danger isn't that great, consider that the fatal legislation in discussion right now was actually passed by the House very quickly and by a landslide in December of 2013. Only through the quick actions Randy and a few others was this side-tracked by the Senate last year. However, RIGHT NOW the same bill is back in the house with millions and millions of dollars of lobbying pushing it. 

Randy has been to Washington DC
(12)  twelve times this year fighting this legislation.  He will discuss what is happening right now in the fight to protect your constitutional rights and what we have to do right now to help protect our Intellectual Property.

Cheers on Inventing/Innovating.

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.

Cheers on Inventing/Innovating.
