Marketing your invention, launching your business plan
Sen. Mike Enzi at the 2017 Inventors Conference held in Torrington, Wyo.
WYOMING – Wyoming has always been home to big dreamers with big ideas. It’s still the case, but the challenge today is getting that great business plan off the ground.
The annual Inventors Conference, hosted by US Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., will take place October 13 in Casper. It has become the go-to gathering for inventors, small business owners, and entrepreneurs. The annual conference is dedicated to helping individuals with ideas learn more about the patent process, business planning, funding options and marketing.
The Inventors Conference has become a Wyoming tradition and features speakers and inventors who share knowledge and expertise, Enzi said. The conference is free and open to the public.
This year’s keynote speaker is Nate Storey, who is the co-founder and chief science officer of an indoor vertical farming company called Plenty. His startup business with 43 employees in Laramie grew to a company with more than $200 million in investments and a goal to build indoor farms outside of every major city in the world.
“Folks in Wyoming have big ideas, and that is why I host the Inventors Conference each year,” Enzi said. “Inventing isn’t easy. Inventors constantly have to learn the latest in patent law or find financing. The experts at this conference are there to help with those problems.”
Regardless of background or experience, everyone is welcome to attend and learn how to build on their ideas. The conference will be held at Casper College on Oct. 13. Doors open at 7:30am and events start at 8:30am.
Pre-registration is available now by contacting Enzi’s state director, Karen McCreery, at (307) 527-9444 or . If you are unable to pre-register, registration will be available the morning of the conference.
