MakePDX is getting together again and this time we will have guests from the Micro-Inventors Program of Oregon!
Ever wondered what to do after you came up with that great idea or how to go about selling it or protecting it? MIPO is an organization designed around helping inventors get to that next step!
ABOUT MIPO (http://mipooregon.org)
MIPO provides inventors with consulting, training, and resources that focus on bringing their inventions to market as a means of diversifying Oregon's economy and increasing opportunities for solutions to societal challenges.
MIPO works with entrepreneurs to move their inventions and conceptional models toward commercialization or licensing ventures. By doing so, local communities will benefit from an increase in higher-paying jobs and better opportunities for products to enter the market that were conceived in Oregon.
By creating these opportunities, Oregon will cultivate an environment of economic and technology innovation that will increase capital investment in Oregon, create more innovative-based enterprises, emphasize job creation, while focusing on socially responsible inventions that bring solutions to our complex societal challenges.
