I’ve been involved with renewable energy new technologies and inventions in that arena for eight years. It has been both a very interesting road and also a very challenging road especially in the last four years. I have had to learn both about business, patents, and promotion in addition to growing in my technical fields and perfecting the technical applications. I have been involved with the Green2Gold Business Incubator and inventors workshop for the last year of those eight years and I want to give a huge shout out to the assistance and focus that Alan Tratner and the Incubator program have provided for me.
As an inventor, it can become a far to solitary task to focus first on developing your inventions and then . . . . marketing them. Alan has helped me to develop a healthy and strong discipline in 1st properly vetting and analyzing my work, and then 2nd vigorously stepping out to meet, communicate with and then work together with the many people and organizations that are available to assist you in your expanded development and commercialization stages leading to funding. As an inventor, it is far to easy to remain isolated and protective of your brainchildren so that they don’t get to see the light of day that they need. Alan helps you through that phase in a very hands on and experienced way. He gives greatly of his time and responds to questions and e-mails. That hands on availability is unique and most valuable to inventors . . . . and it has been appreciated in my efforts as well. I recommend checking out the Green2Gold offering and methods to inventors who would like to move forward with their work, understandings, and commercialization efforts."
