The Minnesota Inventor’s Congress has been around almost 50 years… starting in 1958.
It started to help link inventors, manufacturers, marketers, and the general public. Like many smaller towns, they experienced the “brain drain” of their young people so they hoped it would encourage some to stay near home.
Has it helped? In 1964 one inventor came with his prototype for a cane with 4 prongs to increase stability… now you see these everywhere. A few years later he brought his business back to Redwood Falls and employs 38 people.
Have an invention but don’t know where to go to get manufacturing and marketing links? You may find your answer in Minnesota!
It’s June 8-10th this year in Redwood Falls, Minnesota.
