Florida is a great area in which to be an Inventor.
I am amazed at how much interest NFIIG has had over the past years. It is interesting and exciting to watch the things Inventors and Innovators in North Florida are doing. It is refreshing to see the determination of people who have an idea and pursue it with tenacity. It is impressive to me the success folks have been achieving in the marketplace. It is always exciting to meet someone who is actually "Doing it". They are inspirational and I enjoy watching them get their product from concept to market.
“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 Mark Shaw and the folks at ULTRATECH for our meeting in October. It was very informative and we had almost 40 folks in attendance. We appreciate all the hospitality shown our group.
The next meeting of the North Florida Inventors/Innovators Group will be in January. Yes....January!!!! I know that a lot of folks would like to meet, however, we will not be meeting in November or December. Past years have shown that attendance wanes substantially during the months of November and December as everyone is in the middle of planning for and around the Holidays. We will meet in January and our speaker will be a local Patent Attorney speaking about patent defense and similar issues.
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.
Our motto must continue to be perseverance. And ultimately I trust the Almighty will crown our efforts with success.- William Wilberforce
