The Planet Eureka! Innovation Roadshow is brought to you by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s NIST/MEP Network and Merwyn Research Incorporated.
Every participant receives a Merwyn Business Simulation (MBS) market research report (see Home page “View Sample Report”) AND gets their report published to the official USA National Innovation Marketplace.
Together these are a $2000 value complements of NIST/MEP.
The Innovation Roadshow Workshops begin in the morning with a highly interactive session focused on translating inventions into language that excites business partners – specifically: Dramatic Difference (why should I care?); Overt Benefit (what’s in it for me?); and, Real Reason to Believe (why should I believe you?). These key messages are developed while simultaneously focusing on “who are we selling?” and “what problem are we solving?”. Inventors learn a concept, work individually and then pair up with their fellow inventors frequently to give and receive feedback.
In the afternoon it’s time to bring it all together with the MBS. Participants go live online with their wireless laptops to http://www.PlanetEureka.com and submit their invention on the spot. Facilitators are on hand to help with concept writing and answer questions related to the MBS inputs. The questions can be viewed anytime to help prepare for the Workshop at http://www.PlanetEureka.org and clicking “Submit/Test Innovation”. Within seven days the MBS market research will produced by Merwyn Research Inc and be posted to the USA National Innovation Marketplace.
From here buyers can view the reports online and inventors can email them to prospective target partners, print them for marketing collateral, etc. NIST MEP During the White House Task Force on Middle Class Families meeting on June 23, 2009, in Perrysburg, OH, the Department of Commerce announced the expansion of the National Innovation Marketplace.
This program will help revitalize supply chains by providing manufacturers with the tools they need to transition from contracting sectors to emerging technologies and new market opportunities. “American manufacturers have sophisticated technologies and systems and some of the most skilled workforces in the entire world,” said Secretary Locke.
“By expanding the National Innovation Marketplace, the Commerce Department is bringing together in one place the ideas, products and future opportunities businesses need to identify new markets, diversify and create new jobs.” See: http://www.mep.nist.gov/about-mep/index.htm#nistmep
WHY IS THE US GOVERNMENT FUNDING THE INNOVATION ROADSHOW?
Most inventors need help: Connecting with buyers, licensees, investors Communicating in language that excites partners. Answering “What is my idea worth?” Inventors chances of success of getting to market are dismal – less than 1/10 of 1% make it. The Good News is … Probability of success increases with education & coaching AND the US Dept of Commerceʼs NIST/MEP will fund a Workshop for 20+ members of YOUR Club. The Innovation Roadshow Workshop is available to Canton Inventor’s Association for a limited time, on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis, so register a session for your Club TODAY!
“The educational, skills-sharpening and professional connection opportunities our members received from having their inventions published to the USA National Innovation Marketplace were superb. They now have very professional marketing and business tools which they can present to potential buyers.”
– Don Skaggs, President Central Kentucky Inventors Council
