Have you joined the IAA yet?

 

Twenty-six years ago, the Inventors Association of Arizona was formed to help new inventors navigate the difficult path of developing a unique idea into an actual product, then teaching the steps involved to profit from the commercialization of that product. The goal was to educate and provide a centralized source of information through educational keynote speaker meetings. Over the years, this organization has evolved into so much more.
Learn about IAA!


During their private Think Tank meetings, this active, dynamic group of “idea generators” use their collective synergy to help each other connect with resources, think through obstacles, develop prototypes, challenge each other and share their unique ability to think outside the box to achieve a goal. This is truly a group of inventors helping inventors, supporting each other, making a difference and helping each other move forward! You don’t have to be in Arizona to join, and all meetings are currently online! Join in on the fun and education and see what they are all about!

Take a look at their next open meeting, on December 2nd at 7pm Arizona time.
