Long Island Inventors and Entrepreneurs Club

In 2018 the Nassau and Suffolk County inventors clubs joined to be a single entity – the Long Island Inventors and Entrepreneurs Club, brought to you by the Farmingdale Small Business Development Center, located on the campus of Farmingdale State College.

Monthly meetings are held to encourage and assist regional inventors to discover the resources available to them to help bring their product to market. The club is open and free to attend to all who have the curiosity of commercialization.

Each month speakers will discuss and share their expertise. Topics to be discussed:

  • Intellectual Property Protections
  • Design & Product Development
  • Manufacturing
  • Licensing
  • Marketing
  • Distribution
  • Business Formation & Management

Meetings are facilitated by Brian Fried, expert inventor and guest speaker, and the Small Business Development Center. Networking at each meeting allows participants to connect with various experts to help launch their idea.
