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.

READY, SET,--Speed Meet. A Very Fast, Very Fun, Very Social , Introduction Meeting

Please RSVP if you will be joining us.

  • River City Brewing Co

    835 Museum Cir, JacksonvilleFL (edit map)

  • On the right as you come in the door.
  • One of the benefits of our group has been the ability to meet with and bounce ideas off of people like yourself who think outside the box. Since it's been a while since we did just a social meeting, this month, we are going to do something a little different and it should be a lot of fun. We encourage new folks to come join us too as it will be a great way to understand the power of the relationships forged with other innovators. 

    Everyone in attendance will spend 2 minutes in a face to face introduction with another member. Tell them who you are, what you are doing, some background about yourself including your skills and talents, and also what you need help with. 

    At the end of your 2 minutes, your face to face partner will then do the same with you. 

    At the bell, you move on and find another new friend and we continue until everyone has met or we just can't take it anymore...LOL.  At the end of an hour you will know a lot more about all of your fellow North Florida Inventors/Innovators and hopefully find out about resources you didn't know existed. 

    While this isn't meant to be just an "abuse the other guy or gal with your business pitch meeting", its ok to mention what you do... and along the way hopefully make some new friends that you can help, or that can help you. 

    I hope to see everyone at this meeting as I think it will be fast, furious, fun, and will bring us much closer as a group. It's a great way for new folks joining us to understand more about North Florida Inventors/Innovators Group, and how  Inventive local North Florida entrepreneurs truly are. 

    As always there is no charge for the meeting. However, as River City Brewing Company does not charge us for the room, they do require that all who attend purchase lunch. 

    Cheers on Inventing/Innovating


We love to see our group of Inventors/Innovators grow and thrive! If you know anyone who could benefit from our group, feel free to invite them to a meeting or have them reach out to me. 

Cheers on Inventing/Innovating.
