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.

Patent Search Workshop - June 11th - Saturday 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Speaker:   Bob Fish 

“Inventors invent – that’s what they do!  New ideas all the time.  And that leads to a big problem of inventors figuring out which inventions to pursue, either on their own or with patent counsel.  The answer is for inventors to get really good at patentability searching.  Bob Fish, a patent attorney with 27 years experience, and over 14,000 patents and applications prosecuted by his group, is leading a “searching workshop” on Saturday, June 11th at the Cove with assistance from Cynthia Kirkeby of the Inventors Forum.  REGISTER NOW..
