17th November: CLUBNight!

Benjamin Harrison is a social media specialist (wouldn’t you like to be one too?) What’s more, he knows how to license products and business methods to open-innovation companies. He helps product developers and independent inventors all over the world to get their ideas pitch-ready via coaching, webinars and online courses … and now he will teach us in a hands-on and practical way how to use LinkedIn to identify who you may need to speak to and how to use LI to forward your invention project. Join us!

Inventors Club takes a break in December – there are no meetings and we begin again with Eureka!MEET on January 19th 2022 with a fabulous surprise to get us going for the new year! Watch this space as they say!

What is the Inventors Club?

The III Inventors Club was created for many reasonsand all of them with YOU in mind.

It just made sense to establish a regular and virtual gathering place for Inventors because the Institute needed an online platform to reach out to its members and a much wider audience besides.  Joining the Club is FREE and has proven to be a very effective means to access the online South African community and disseminate current information inventors need to know. Presently there are no members-only restrictions though they may come in future. Our Inventors Club has taken off, is building its followers steadily and getting some international visitors too!  

You’re welcome to follow the links and join us on Wednesdays one-two-and-three.

Eureka!MEET takes place every second Wednesday of the month, is a public meeting, open to all. Most usually specially invited guests and presenters talk about current topics of interest relevant to all stages of taking and invention idea to market. The process of inventing is a complicated one and Eureka!MEET is gearedto making this journey easier for Inventors.
