About the Inventors Forum
The Southern California Inventors Forum is one of the largest inventors’ groups in the United States. Formed over 20 years ago as a small group of inventors, the group is now a 501(c)(3) non-profit with over 500 members. We help inventors learn how to research, develop and protect their inventions with patents, trademarks, and other intellectual property. We offer valuable support and insight into ways to profit from their inventions through building their own business or licensing their inventions.
The Inventors Forum holds 2 meetings a month:
- a speaker’s meeting, sponsored in part by UCI’s Applied Innovation at 5141 California Ave #250, Irvine, CA
- a members’ assistance meeting (for members only) sponsored in part by Urban Workshop at 365 Clinton, Costa Mesa, CA
