Do you have an idea you’ve been sitting on for quite a while? Was the widget you built in the garage really handy? Would you like to commercialize your idea but don’t know where to begin?

You can learn how to turn your ideas into commercially viable products at the North Dakota State University Inventors Basic Training Boot Camp set for May 2-3 at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck. The registration deadline is April 21.

“Participants will learn about patents, trademarks, trade secrets and documentation; designing, prototyping and product testing; developing business plans; branding and e-marketing; business registration and licensing requirements; legalities and liabilities; funding; manufacturing decisions; and why North Dakota is a great place to start a business,” says David Lehman, NDSU Extension’s industrial and manufacturing engineer.

The participants also will be able to connect with state and industry resources, and meet and network with other entrepreneurs who are involved in product development and commercialization.

NDSU’s College of Engineering is hosting the workshop. The NDSU Extension Service, Extension’s Center for Community Vitality, the North Dakota Department of Commerce and the Center for Technology and Business are sponsoring the event.

The registration fee is $85. For more information or to register, visit http://tinyurl.com/NDSUInventorsBootCamp or contact Lehman at 701-730-3956 or david.lehman@ndsu.edu.
