This event is now taking place at the British Library's Business and IP Centre.

Great ideas can change the world!

However, whilst lots of us often spot the potential for a new product or a new piece of technology, the harsh realities of research and development, prototyping, manufacturing and distribution often mean that few of those ideas make it to market.

The club meets regularly on the last Monday of the month.

At the event, we will be talking to innovators who have already brought their products to market or have disclosed their intellectual property. Join us to learn about their journeys, what problems they had to overcome and useful tips about bringing a new product to market. 

The Inventors' Club is brought to you by the Business & IP Centre in collaboration with:
