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.

We will meet August 31st at 12 noon at River City Brewing Company in downtown Jacksonville.
I hope you can join us this month as Yash Nath of Jacksonville Startup Weekend will be our speaker. He will be presenting the ins and outs of what Jacksonville Startup Weekend is all about and why you should be there. 

As a previous winner , I can tell you that it absolutely was one of the coolest things I have ever done in my business life. 54 hours of entrepreneurial energy like you have never seen before. I highly recommend that you enter or attend this event. You will be amazed at what you will learn and who you will meet. I believe you will learn more about business in this one weekend than you likely could learn in years on your own. 

I plan on being a mentor at this years Weekend and I hope you can join me this month as we welcome Yash Nath. The link below will tell you more .....
