Hello all iig contacts:
Will be sending this press release out to the news tomorrow.
We hope to represent the club well!
Cedar Rapids, IA July 26, 2010 Iowa Inventors Group is proud to announce that 2 of its members have been asked to present their inventions to a panel of judges next month. The Inventors Club of Kansas City has chosen 19 inventions out of over 100 submitted entries to be presented in front of actual product scouts and judges. Chip Novetzke of Cedar Rapids will present his patent pending invention called the YardStick. Frank Morosky, president of the Iowa Inventors Group, will present his company’s product (Flat-d.com) the Universal Deodorizer.
The two inventors will travel to Kansas City in August in hopes of getting an award or product licensing agreement with a major manufacturer. There will be actual product scouts and executives from several companies (Faultless, Garden Weasel, Trapp and BonAmi) looking for products to add to their own list of products. This show was highly selective in the type of products they were looking for. Lawn and garden and cleaning products for retail stores are some of the items on their list of desirable inventions. This is the 5th annual invention show the club has produced. The club can boast that 7 inventions have been licensed due to this show. http://www.inventorsclubofkc.org
This is the first time anyone will see Chips invention. He recently received a provisional patent for his product and he is now working on a prototype to show the judges next month. Chip says about this opportunity; “I am blessed to have this opportunity to show “The YardStick” to companies in this field. I hope my product will become available to anyone that is looking for a faster, easier and most importantly, ergonomically correct way to kill off dandelions or other unwanted plant life in their yards and gardens. I might add that “The YardStick” can also be used to fertilize selective plant life as well.”
Frank Morosky is a seasoned inventor and has presented his product to Billy Mays and to Jay Leno on the Tonight Show a couple years ago. "As inventors, our goal is to capitalize on our ideas and this looks like a golden opportunity for us to make money on our ideas."
The Iowa Inventors Group is an Eastern Iowa resource for all types of inventors. They have monthly meetings to assist inventors develop their ideas. Check out their website which lists other contests and information www.iowainventorsgroup.org
