Welcome to the Southern California Inventors Forum, one of the largest inventors’ groups in the United States. We were formed over 20 years ago as a small group of inventors, and are now a 501(c)(3) non-profit. With over 500 members, we help inventors learn how to research, develop and protect their inventions. We offer valuable support and insight into ways to profit from their inventions through building their own business or licensing their inventions.
April 14th is our Speaker Series at Applied Innovations:
Inventors Forum Speaker's Series
Documentary and Panel:
She Started It
(A Documentary and Panel on Women Founders & Inventors)
We'll be showing the documentary "She Started It" beginning at 7:00 pm and then there will be a panel discussion following the film.
Space is Limited. See the Trailer
If you are a woman with an idea for a product or company, you should come to see this documentary film. Bring your friends (female and male) and show them the state of startups. Bring your daughters and teach them they can be founders. They can invent and run incredible businesses. Bring your husbands and boyfriends. Open a dialog with your circle of family and friends.
Stats on Women Owned Business in the United States:
As of 2016, it is estimated that there are now 11.3 million (11,313,900) women-owned businesses in the United States, employing nearly 9 million people (8,976,100) and generating over $1.6 trillion ($1,622,763,800,000) in revenues.
Women-owned firms (51% or more) account for 31% of all privately held firms and yet they contribute only 14% of employment and 12% of revenues.
