If you’ve ever had a great idea for invention, this presentation is for you.

Jeffrey Dobkin, President and 14-year Board Member of the Philadelphia-area American Society of Inventors, will describe:

  • “How-to” information for inventors including design, research, patents, marketing, licensing... the full range of what every inventor should know.

  • Whether to apply for a patent, or to use alternatives.

  • How to figure out if your product will sell even before you have a sample of it.

  • How unscrupulous marketing firms work, and how to tell if a firm is legitimate.

He has given seminars for the U.S. Postal Service and AT&T, and has been on the radio well over 125 times as both guest and host on shows around the country.
