To Invent, or Not To Invent – That is The Question

May 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Ever had an idea? If you answered yes, this seminar is for you. Coming up with an idea is the easiest part of inventing. What to do with your idea, is when the challenges begin.

Hosted by Queen’s Partnerships and Innovation and presented by Mike Kelly, this workshop is intended for anyone who’s ever had an idea but doesn’t know what to do with it.

This presentation will discuss:

How Do You Invent – Where to Start
The Two Main Categories of Inventions
You’ve Got an Idea, Now What?
What Costs Are Involved and How Long Will It Take?
Do I Need To Protect My Idea?
Note: Registrants will be sent a link to connect to the session 24 hours prior to the start time.


Mike Kelly has been a serial entrepreneur for decades, having brought several product ideas to market. Inventing is not for the faint of heart, as there are many hurdles to overcome, but understanding them, will help you navigate them.
