INVENTOR’S LIFTOFF BRINGS TRIAD AREA START-UPS TOGETHER FOR COLLABORATION, EDUCATION AND RAPID BUSINESS LAUNCH
MARCH 26, 2015 GREENSBORO, NC
Inventors Liftoff, a collaboration between The Forge and the Greensboro Partnership Entrepreneur Connection, is an event to inspire, inform, and showcase inventors and innovators in Greensboro, NC and the Triad Region.
This free event will take place April 1-3 2015 at Gibbs Hundred Brewery and The Forge, and is open to the public. Registration is required.
“All inventors are called ‘fools’ until they make money, so we couldn't think of a better day to launch this support event than April Fools Day,” said Joel Leonard, Community Development Coordinator at The Forge.
Successful inventors will share their stories and inspire other promising inventors to transform their own ideas to actuality. Inventors at every stage will receive tactical advice from experts on topics including intellectual property protection, industrial design, prototyping, finding investment funding, as well as marketing and communication.
“We are excited to see what local innovators are working on, and to showcase the success of other local inventors,” Leonard added. “It’s time to raise awareness about the great start-ups and entrepreneurs coming out of the Triad.”
