InventVermont is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which promotes invention in Vermont:
Education and Networking
Meetings are held featuring speakers who are experts in fields of interest to Vermont inventors. These meetings provide education to inventors on ways to develop their ideas and bring them to market. Time for networking is provided at the end of each meeting, so that inventors can tap the resources of other inventors or business people to facilitate the development of their own ideas.
Private Inventor Help Sessions
These confidential sessions offer inventors the opportunity to have their invention idea reviewed by peers possessing a variety of skills and expertise. These sessions provide objective feedback on their idea and generate multiple solutions to problems they are encountering in the commercialization of the idea. A non-disclosure agreement protects the inventor and allows him/her to share freely.
