Enzi Press Office (Washington, D.C.) – If you are an inventor, small business owner or entrepreneur, head to Casper on Oct. 13 to attend the Inventors Conference hosted by U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo. The annual conference is dedicated to helping individuals with ideas learn more about the patent process, business planning, funding options and marketing.
The Inventors Conference has become a Wyoming tradition and features speakers and inventors who share knowledge and expertise, Enzi said. The conference is free and open to the public.
This year’s keynote speaker is Nate Storey, who is the co-founder and chief science officer of an indoor vertical farming company called Plenty. His startup business with 43 employees in Laramie grew to a company with more than $200 million in investments and a goal to build indoor farms outside of every major city in the world.
“Folks in Wyoming have big ideas, and that is why I host the Inventors Conference each year,” Enzi said. “Inventing isn’t easy. Inventors constantly have to learn the latest in patent law or find financing. The experts at this conference are there to help with those problems.”
