Topic: How to Create Revenue Generating Inventions, with Andy Barkin & Terry O’Mara!


When you first come up with an idea, how do you know it’s worth moving forward with? What idea should you start with, how do you research it, and create an invention that truly sells?

At our first Inventors Online Workshop, we will walk you through how to come up with successful ideas, and how to do the market research needed to put your best foot forward in the licensing game. We have teamed up with Andy Barkin and Terry O’Mara – that’s right, two guests in one action packed hour! Andy will be focusing on ideation and how to come up with an idea that has merit, and Terry will do the market research to see how much merit it truly has – all demonstrated live! IGA’s Workshops will always leave you with action steps and key takeaways so you can do it too! Come join our workshop on February 24th, learn about ideation and market research, and get your questions answered in this very hands-on important meeting – it really is the first step in licensing!
