10:00 AM: Intellectual Property Legal Aid
September 11, 2019 –
Determining Intellectual Property Viability is a critical step. Is the product idea novel or innovative and is there any probability that the product is protect-able through a U.S. Patent? How is the product different from what already exists in the market? Meet with a patent attorney at CMEC’s monthly Intellectual Property Legal Aid (IPLA), which is a free initial consultation and determine a road map toward patent protection of your ideas.

Sheyla Harbas - The Defrosted Trucker
Having built a career in the trucking industry, my husband and I have been able to focus on the needs that exist. One of those needs is a way to heat semi truck engines in the deep winters, so that they are able to start.
Our target market is truck drivers, mechanics, and fleet owners primarily. It would be a product we would sell directly to fleets in bulk, and also look to retail at Truck Stop locations nationally.

9:00 AM: One Million Cups / Northwest Indiana
September 25, 2019 –
1 Million Cups (1MC) is based on the notion that great ideas are discussed over a million cups of coffee. 1MC is not a pitch platform, nor is it a networking event. It’s simply a chance for 1-2 presenting entrepreneurs to tap into the knowledge and experience of the local community in a focused and encouraging environment.
During each event, entrepreneurs have just six minutes to present their company or business idea (from newly formed up to 5 years old) to a room full of community members. For the next 20 minutes, the audience will ask questions, provide helpful feedback, and share similar experiences or support.
