Do you have the next great million-dollar invention?
Mineola, NY – Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano is inviting residents to showcase their products and prototypes at a June 23rd meeting of the Nassau County Inventors and Entrepreneurs Club. The showcase, “The Next Million Dollar Idea,” will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Ceremonial Chambers of the Theodore Roosevelt County Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola.
“The Nassau County Inventors and Entrepreneurs Club is creating an environment where residents can turn their ideas into viable business products,” said County Executive Mangano. “Our residents are the County’s best resource for a future filled with economic growth.”
The Nassau County Industrial Development Agency and entrepreneur Brian Fried organized the Club early in 2012 and since then its events have attracted more than 2,500 attendees.
“We are looking for actual products or working prototypes that can be shown at the event, not plans or drawings,” said Club President Brian Fried.
Prospective exhibitors must secure intellectual property protection for their inventions prior to showcasing their work. Inventors will be required to sign disclaimers prior to participation.
Inventors interested in exhibiting should send an email before June 13th indicating their interest to BrianFried@gmail.com. The email must include the inventor’s name, hometown, invention name, a two-sentence description, as well as the inventor’s web site and a contact telephone number. All submissions will be reviewed by Fried.
The showcase will be limited to 12 presenters who will be allotted at least 5 minutes to explain and demonstrate their respective products. The Exhibitors must be residents of Nassau County and admission to the event is free for inventors and guests.
