JOIN THE NEXT WAVE INVENTORS MOVEMENT

“CATCH THE NEXT WAVE & ENJOY MAKING A DIFFERENCE”

The Chicago Inventors Organization (CIO) welcomes the opportunity and challenge to convince Donors and Corporate funding entities that together we can create a Chicago that excels in the development of innovative products by underserved inventors. We encourage you to join us in “Catching The Next Wave of Inventors & Making A Difference”.


Over the last four years with only membership revenues and very limited corporate funding, CIO (with the assistance of Chicago’s Kent Law School Patent Hub) has been able to help its members acquire 90+ patents, 50+ patents pending and 6 trademarks. However, through CIO’s Prototyping Lab and Service Provider Network, we have also been able to assist underserved patent holders to acquire 129 prototypes and 24 manufacturing inventory runs.


Your tax-deductible sponsorships and donations will help expand CIO resources to provide enhanced interactive working spaces for Multi-Generational Inventors, purchase the necessary equipment to broadcast inventor classes and events to our Network of Innovators and the General Public.
