JumpStart260 – a New Must-Attend Meeting

Inventors.  Do you want to hang around with some energized entrepreneurs, meet people who are designing and commercializing new products and services, network with developers, graphics designers, marketers, SEO gurus, and business development wonks?


Come to JumpStart260, a new monthly meetup that attracted over 50 people at its opening event.  The next meeting is scheduled for Friday March 16 at Columbia Street West at 7:00 p.m.  Although you may buy alcohol, the event is open to all ages (I’ll be there with my 16 year old business partner Gary).

It’s a great time – come join us.  Go to JumpStart260.com to register for your free (but needed) ticket.

February 2012 Meeting

Great meeting today at the Innovation Center!

Good group and a great discussion about getting started with the right blend of attention to both protecting your IP and also getting your business off of the ground and making money.

We saw two great inventor presentations.

Jordan Ross, a 14 year old middle school student, presented his vision for a new type of television product.

Michael Rusher had just received a new prototype for his respiratory therapy product.

Jim Bradley finally had someone here with whom he could speak Russian!  Ekatherine Vaynberg was here from Moscow visiting the Innovation Center.

Lots of folks at the meeting this January.  What a good crowd!


Thanks to Jim Bradley for giving us an introduction to TRIZ.

Michael Rusher spent some time walking us through his invention, a medical device for respiratory therapy.  Very cool, Michael!

Dan Templeton and Ace McKay whiteboarded Ace’s invention (which we will leave confidential for now).  Good luck figuring out the concept from this sketch.
