Opportunities for Members A Must See Video - Watch this interview of Spanx Inventor, Sara Blakely . Hear how she did it. You may want to mimic her invention processes.
Display Your Invention - All Northern Nevada Inventors, if you have an invention that has progressed to the prototype stage, we want you to display it in the new NIA Inventors Exhibit at the Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Build your own Prototype - Have you hear of The Generator? This is a well funded free co-op artist workspace. They have lots of equipment and tools to make most anything you want. If you don't have a skill, there is a large person-to-person skills trading whiteboard (you teach your skill and they teach you theirs). Here is a video about them and their philosophy.

Aug 13 Crowd Funding - This comes from the UIA. My Cool Inventions Radio is heard coast to coast in over 20 major markets with over 200,000 listeners. In order to connect our listeners with the Inventor's projects in need of funding, we have launched My Invent Fund. You simply go to www.MyInventFund.com and submit your project. For example, if you need funds to start your patent, then ask for that. If you need funds for a prototype, then ask for that, after you fund your patent. In other words, build your success one brick at a time. When your funding request is published, you can direct friends and family there to help. We will then direct our over 200,000 listeners to help. We will even start inviting inventors onto our live radio show to "Pitch" their funding request.
Since our founding in 1987 by Don Costar, the organization has gone through several incarnations and changes. However we have always been: --- Helping the world and innovation, one inventor at a time... okay maybe more than one...in parallel... not series....
We are a nonprofit 501(c)(6) organization focused on helping the independent inventor with the Invention Process Steps that are commonly packaged and sold by "for profit inventor service companies". We understand that many inventors do not have much of a budget or even resources to conceptualize, design, prototype and patent their inventions. As a group, we can all work together to pool our resources and share our experiences so that we can as individuals achieve more with less.
Our Mission is to be the leading local forum for independent inventors to socialize and acquire education, assistance, and networking in the innovation process.
The organization has monthly meetings open to the public which are listed in the adjacent calendar and on our meetup.com site. All activities are guided by officers of the Executive Board and through Committees.
We use Meetup to announce meetings and email each other. Click on the image to reach our Meetup Page.
