The desire to innovate is alive and well in the United States.
It seems everyone is in on the endeavor. Dr Phil is promoting invention. Ellen Degenerous spotlights new products. We have new company’s like Quirky and Edision Nation helping inventors launch new ideas. Then there’s the growing number of large corporations embracing open innation and actively seeking outside inventions. There are many sources of “how to” in the world of inventing and innovation. One source you might find interesting is The Inventors Center of KC, a nonprofit in Kansas City, Missouri that hold monthly meetings and invention contests that are live web cast from the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center.
