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.

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.
