Welcome to the Southern California Inventors Forum, one of the largest inventors’ groups in the United States. We were formed over 20 years ago as a small group of inventors, and are now a 501(c)(3) non-profit. With over 500 members, we help inventors learn how to research, develop and protect their inventions. We offer valuable support and insight into ways to profit from their inventions through building their own business or licensing their inventions.

Next Inventors Members Only Assistance Event: April 29th Urban Workshop - 365 Clinton Street, Costa Mesa, CA
Speaker: Eric Paul Rose
Kickstarter has proven to be a powerful tool for inventors to launch their new products, simultaneously gaining market validation and funding. Eric Paul Rose, NPDP, MBA, will be speaking about how to run an effective campaign. Eric is a product innovation and management consultant who provides entrepreneurs the expertise to move new products from market opportunity into marketplace reality.
The second half of the meeting will feature a panel discussion that includes inventors who have run successful Kickstarter campaigns. Philip LaBonty, the developer of the Cycleboard, and Jacob Jacobsma, the developer of the Peanut Board, will discuss their experiences, do's and don'ts, and answer questions from the group.
