The Inventors Club of NE Arkansas was formed in 2014 as a cooperative effort by the A-State SBTDC and 3D Precision Enterprises, LLC to help inventors take their ideas from concept to commercialization.
Their resources include business consultants, CAD designers, engineers, manufacturers, patent attorneys and marketing groups.
The club is also building a network of experts to provide the capability inventors need to review, patent, design, manufacture, and market their ideas.
