CIO’s Advisory and Prototyping Staff has advised hundreds of inventors on the appropriately priced resources necessary for their Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights, CAD Designs, 3D Printing and Manufacturing. CIO’s efforts have resulted in members acquiring 90+ patents, 40+ patents pending, 4 trademarks, 6 copyrights, 109 prototypes and 24 manufactured product inventory runs.
