IPower A Young Inventor
The National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE) provides an unprecedented opportunity for young inventors to be acknowledged and rewarded for their innovative thinking. Unfortunately, many schools, programs, and communities struggle with the resources to send their brightest inventors to DC to compete at NICEE. To help the nation’s most deserving, underserved inventors, the STEMIE Coalition has created the IPower program, partnering with the Intellectual Property Legal Industry to help send these kids to DC to compete. The IP Legal Industry bases itself in invention, entrepreneurship, ingenuity, and is a perfect partner for The STEMIE Coalition.
“It’s not too often that our law firm is asked to help sponsor a program that is so well aligned to our corporate interests,” says Mike Cantor, founder of Cantor Colburn LLP, a top 10 IP U.S. law firm. “Helping these kids understand intellectual property concepts, and help them learn how to invent the future of America, puts us on a path that helps keep America at the forefront of ingenuity and towards feeding a robust and growing IP industry moving forward.”
The STEMIE Coalition has created three different levels designed to maximize the effect a small donation can make in the life of a young inventor – 100% of IPower funds go directly to young inventors and their chaperones (excepting the price of Coffee Table Books and Event Signage).
