Recent interest in inventing has reached a new peak. The economy is picking up, funds for inventors to launch has become available
thru many means. Check out this interview with ABCNews. Eureka! Recession Sparks Inventive Spirit
The point is we can help ourselves and this country’s economy by living the great American dream.
This interview with Bradley Fikes from the North County Times was published May 17 th: “Ideas Become Jobs”
Now is the time inventors, become an entrepreneur! – Adrian Pelkus

Attention Female Inventors: Milojo Productions (brainchild of Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos) is now casting women with fabulous
ideas and great personalities from across America for a new series. The show, set to air on TLC, takes a selected female inventor

commercialization web portal which provides prospective SBIR applicants and other energy entrepreneurs with the tools, training,
and support to write a successful SBIR proposal. For more details on what’s available to you, You are cordially invited to use the
DOE SBIR Technical Assistance Program Web Portal at http://doecapreg.foresightst.com.

I really like what some other Inventors groups are doing. Here is a great example from the Inventors Society of South Florida (ISSF):

Keeping a logbook of your inventions is a good idea. It's an effective means of staying organized and can also serve as proof that
you are the inventor. Logbook maintenance however, has special requirements and pitfalls. To find out more read the June
newsletter "The Inventor's Mentor" by George Levy. For archived copies of the newsletters and more information for inventors go to
Patents and Ventures.

Each month we focus on a topic relevant to inventors and share knowledge and experience. We network inventors and builders,
artists, designers and engineers, legal, business and marketing service providers to discuss all aspects of product development.
Success breeds success! Invite your friends. To pre register for the next meeting contact Scott Sykora @ scott.sykora@gmail.com
