We assist inventors in navigating through the complex invention process to create marketable products that have a chance at sharing shelf space with other major household products. Let’s bring your ideas to life and make sure that it’s something awesome!
We keep inventors on the right track with weekly CIO member networking events, pro bono patent programs, CIO Inventors Academy seminars featuring industry expert guest speakers and our CIO volunteer prototyping team.
