Mother of Invention Regional Conference – Rescheduled!
Mar 14 @ 7:00 am – 6:00 pm
Mother of Invention Regional Conference - Rescheduled! @ Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce | Denver | Colorado | United States

The Mother of Invention Regional Conference is open to all inventors and product developers. It will cover a number of critical phases in the inventing/manufacturing process. The conference could save novice and seasoned inventors tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary expenses. The convention is presented by the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, The Inventors Roundtable™ and the Denver Metro Small Business Development Center.

Our keynote speaker this year will be Matt Armbruster. Matt, CEO and designer of High Roller USA, will share his story of the adult Big Wheel. Remember those Big Wheels every kid raced around the neighborhood? Matt’s sales pitch is pure nostalgia for the trike that changed the suburban landscape after it rolled out in 1969. “We may call it High Roller, but every kid born after 1969 calls it a Big Wheel,” says Armbruster.

“High Rollers USA participates in fund raisers and sporting events around the country,” says Armbruster. The aerospace engineer quit his job to design and manufacture the High Roller. He raised $89,000 through Kickstarter to start the process. Come and hear his story and take a ride on the High Roller USA.

Attendees may attend up to four of the twelve training sessions. You will learn how to develop, protect and market your invention. In addition to these basics, this year we have added a full set of sessions on Funding and Crowdfunding. With these fours sessions, you will learn about the available funding options and how to successfully launch and run a crowdfunding campaign.

Come and learn from people who have the answers that you need. The presentation topics and information offered will be especially valuable to individual and small business inventors. You won’t get this real world “nuts-and-bolts” advice from any college, university, or other organization. This seminar is geared specifically toward educating inventors and entrepreneurs developing ideas and/or inventions.
