The United States Patent and Trademark Office and the Smithsonian American Art Museum are co-sponsoring a symposium targeted at independent inventors and small business entrepreneurs next week on Thursday, October 27 and Friday, October 28. If you are the target audience and will be near Washington, D.C., you may be interested in attending.
The symposium will focus on two main topics: the recently-passed America Invents Act and ideas for inventors and entrepreneurs. The second portion, which will take place the second day of the symposium, will include tips regarding manufacturing, marketing, licensing, and government programs designed to assist and support independent inventors and small business entrepreneurs.
The symposium will be free to attend but you must register in advance. Follow the link below to do so and read more.
