Guests will have the chance to learn from successful inventors and entrepreneurs, and intellectual property experts who will offer practical advice and information for both novice and seasoned inventors and entrepreneurs. Long Island Inventors and Entrepreneurs Club founder Brian Fried, a frequent USPTO collaborator, said the Inventors Day event is designed to provide “bigger opportunities and access to resources for the inventor and entrepreneur community.”


The event will offer attendees the opportunity to learn specifically about the value of patents and trademarks, federal and local resources available to help entrepreneurs start or grow a business, strategies to leverage IP assets, and networking opportunities with experts in the IP and the small business growth and development fields.
