TREND classes

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

Alaskans have dreamed up some Big Wild inventions and the list is impressive for a state that is often characterized as being at the tail-end of technology. To learn more about the issues facing inventors and small innovation companies, the Technology Research and Development Center of Alaska is hosting the Alaska Inventors Forum on April 12 at the BP Energy Center from 10 a.m. to Noon.

A panel of experts will present information on the following topics:
  • Protecting Your Idea:  What are the types of intellectual property?
  • Validating the Market:  Will my product sell?
  • Manufacturing in Alaska: What are the small business challenges?
  • Inventor Fraud:  What are the scams to watch out for?
Panel members are: Jon S. Dawson, Attorney, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP;  Jeri Rubin, Professor, UAA College of Business & Public Policy; Jeremy Zidek, Alaska Better Business Bureau; and Brett Gibson, Owner, Arctic Paws (Yummy Chummies).
Pre-registration and pre-payment are required by contacting TREND at (907) 274.7232 or e-mail to The fee is $25.
