TIOGA – Tioga is partnering with North Dakota State University and the Williston Region Economic Development to celebrate innovations that have been developed in North Dakota to help the agriculture and energy industry.
Regional inventors will submit their patented ideas and products for the chance to be awarded up to $5,000 to help with patent fees and other costs.
Tioga is finding inventions, funding innovation, fostering business and connecting participants at the invention symposium to meet with investors, innovators and educators to learn how to find their next big idea, apply for a patent, manufacture or bring their inventions to market.
Inventors who have completed the patent process will be on hand to assist.
Inventors wishing to submit their patented idea for consideration can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 629-1624
On Aug. 5, at 10 a.m., the Invention Symposium opens to the public. Those attending can meet inventors like TubeMaster’s David and Derrick Allen of Elite Energy and see their electronic heater treater scanner that can help oil producers prevent saltwater disposal spills on production locations.
The Tioga Innovation & Invention Competition event is part of Tioga Drone Camp for Kids 2017.
