Come and learn about inventing and how to take your idea to the next level.
Subscribe to Our Mailing List

Once a month, we have a meeting with a presentation about something invention related. Sometimes it's the creative part, like how someone came up with an idea. Sometimes it's the legal parts, like protection, patents, trademark, & licensing. Manufacturing comes up a lot, and so does marketing. We always enjoy our speakers, and we always learn from them. Questions are always encouraged, and our speakers share insights you can't get anywhere else. Before the meeting, you can visit with other inventors. New faces are always welcome, and if you have questions about invention or patents or marketing or ... there are usually members who can help guide you.

Licensing Using Linkedin In Lieu Of Cold Calls

Benjamin Harrison

Business is all about who you know but how do you spark the relationships necessary to be successful?

Join us in an intimate workshop with product developer, direct outreach expert and “Licensing Ideas Using LinkedIn” author Benjamin Harrison as he demonstrates how professional inventors are using soft skills in the digital age to get their products licensed and marketed.

Participate in an on screen demonstration using LinkedIn to quickly:
• Build a professional presence
• Locate strategic business partners
• Research potential Licensees
• Make connections within companies
• And reach out like a pro

While many inventors have a LinkedIn account, few know how to effectively leverage this game changing tool. Learn all the skills necessary to take advantage of the power of digital networking as an inventor and start connecting with key contacts at potential licensees!

After growing up around and working every angle in the construction industry, Benjamin went on to establish a boutique instrument shop where he eventually designed product lines for top musicians and multiple Grammy award winning artists including one who has been nominated for 12 and walked away with 5.

While producing and venturing high end instruments, Benjamin started learning about licensing from his mentor Stephen Key. As a result of working through many obstacles trying to get major companies to license his products, he mastered new skill sets which led him to co-write “Licensing Ideas using LinkedIn” as well as to create the program “SmartPitch” for InventRight, where he inspires students in learning the art of using LinkedIn to get their inventions and products into companies.

Check out Benjamin and Stephen Key's book "Licensing Ideas Using LinkedIn" on Amazon.

About Us

Alamo Inventors was founded in 2000 and welcomes members and guests to join in with like-minded people from around the area in achieving success in your inventions.

Each month we have meetings to collaborate, interact, inform, and learn about inventing, marketing, manufacturing, protecting, and learning how to succeed with inventions. The mission of the Alamo Inventors is to be a compass, resource and inspiration for inventors and entrepreneurs as they launch their concepts to market.

What We Do
We provide monthly meetings where members can meet and discuss their ideas, problems and solutions, talk with community resource members, and hear guest speakers talk about their real world experiences.

This provides a forum where this information may be shared and discussed to expand and educate the membership of the group.

Additional on-line resources are available to help direct the inventor and entrepreneur to the local and national organizations to help them as their ideas progress from concept to market.
