Innovators' Resource Network


The primary mission of the Innovators' Resource Network is to establish a network for innovators, inventors, entrepreneurs, manufacturers, distributors, service providers, and investors in western Massachusetts and northern Connecticut.

The Innovators' Resource Network engages in activities to facilitate and accelerate successful market entry of its members' products and develops programs to acquaint members with various forms of resources and types of assistance, including private and governmental resources.

The Innovators' Resource Network strives to maintain an atmosphere of trust and respect where inventors are able to discuss their ideas in a non-threatening manner. The Innovators' Resource Network is registered as a 501 (3)c, non-profit.

Innovators' Resource Network Offers:

The Innovators' Resource Network holds two types of meetings - general and closed door.

General meetings are open to the public and are held on alternating first Wednesdays of the month. Speakers are scheduled on a regular basis to present information and to provide a forum for questions and answers covering all stages of innovation. Meetings are free - Public meetings are held in February, April, June, August, October and December.

Closed door meetings for IRN members only are held on alternating first Wednesdays of the month. These sessions provide the opportunity for innovators and inventors to discuss their work in a cooperative and confidential setting. Members will be notified of the location of the closed door meetings.
