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:

Bob Lindsey

He was part of the team which set up the Inventors' Club at Kingston University in 2005, and he regularly runs Innovation Clinics at the British Library.

Speakers for Monday 28 November 2022:

1. Sami Samiee

Sami will introduce an interactive electronic toy which imparts learning. He is seeking feedback from our usually pacripitave audience.

2. Alec Stewart

Although we live in a time of increasing digital storage, for a variety of complex, sometimes nuanced reasons, paper is still widely used and over 45 million ring binders (and lever arch files) were sold last year in the UK alone.  Alec Stewart has developed an innovative, superior product which addresses many of the problems concerning the usage of ring-binders. He will present the “Wingbinder” to the club, seeking feedback.
