May 11th Speaker-Workshop
Inventors Forum holds 10 regular Member's Only Assistance Meetings (January through October)
Bring the ideas that have been percolating in your brain, and give them a jump start!
SPEAKER: Manuel Soto
Manuel is co-owner of Assault Industries, a design and manufacturing business that makes numerous products including after-market parts for sport vehicles. Manuel is an industrial engineer who has assisted several inventors to take their idea from idea to functional prototype and/or production. Manuel's travels have taken him overseas to interact with manufacturers around the world and even to Dubai to judge for a sport vehicle race through the desert. Manuel will present on Assault Industries as well as conduct an interactive workshop for the Inventor's Forum on how to talk with an engineer about your idea. Part of the presentation will involve interaction with one of our members on product development.
WHERE: The Dock HB
5811 W McFadden Ave
Huntington Beach, CA 92649
WHEN: These meetings are held on the last Friday of the month.
Gather at 6:30, meeting starts at 7:00. We will wind down at 8:30 and be out before 9:00.
Come early to network with other inventors. The meeting usually lasts about 2 hours.
FEE: Door fees are $5 for members. Non-members can join at the door. Initial membership fees are $50 per year, and half price ($25) for seniors 65+, full time students and disabled. UCI Students are $12.50. IF does not take credit cards at the meeting. Please, no large denomination bills.
NOTES: Everyone must sign a confidentiality agreement. Inventor presentations with feedback from the whole group are first. Inventors can then meet in smaller groups or network with other inventors where they can get specific help with their inventions. We'll be implementing a new format in 2016.
We are a non-profit group with no paid positions and the success of the group is totally dependent on what YOU bring to the meetings. So please share any helpful information you have. The hard working volunteers who keep IF going appreciate any and all assistance.
