What is the Inventors Association?

We are a not for profit association and pride ourselves in helping inventors and our great country Australia. We meet on a monthly basis to assist members in choosing the correct sequence of steps when developing their ideas. If you are an inventor or innovator, and need questions answered, you are welcome to our meetings to discuss the following questions:

Inventors PresentationYour Intellectual Property.

Intellectual Property makes money for inventors and the Australian economy.

Market Research.

Does my idea already exist? Assistance in finding the information you need.


Invention promotion companies offering the world and delivering nothing? 


Learn how to protect your idea and how to set priority dates on your invention. 

When should I patent?

The arguments made for and against patenting too early. 

When and why I need to patent in other countries?

  • Registered Design
  • Trademark
  • Copyright
  • No patents at all


Immediate benefits of manufacturing in Australia.  Manufacturing overseas. 


The importance of either a computer generated 3D model or a physical working model.

  • What is the most suitable material for manufacture?
  • Will my idea actually work?
  • What standard of finish is required for a prototype? 

Research and Assistance.

  • Government departments and Grants.  Non-government organizations. 

Where to find venture capital? 

  • How to correctly market yourself and the correct use of advertising?
  • How to advertise in the correct media?
  • Entrepreneurship and “selling the rights” to manufacture.

Business Models.

Build a Business Structure to suit your idea.
