Last Meeting – May 2018

We had a think tank discussion as a group and dove into personal accountability in furthering our businesses and moving our innovations forward.

We focused on getting organized and pushing our businesses to the next level and making progress in 2018

The idea for each attendee was to identify their major business or innovation goal and lay out steps to getting there. Then connecting with members that have ideas for how to accomplish those goals where there maybe challenges.

Group Focus:

    Set and know your major goal
    Set the path to accomplish that goal
    Remove obstacles
    Know your tools and resources
    Build your team

The INOTC is consolidating its talent and focus towards progress and its resources. We would like to involve motivated members into these discussions of progress and those who are ready to hold themselves accountable for the future.


Always remember to invite friends or business associates which would benefit from INotC. Collectively we have a deep wealth of knowledge as a group. Invite other inventors, engineers, entrepreneurs, financiers, professors, manufactures and anyone else that would enjoy the process and business of product development. Knowledge is power!!
