Who We Are

The Inventors' Association of New England (IANE), founded on July 28, 1977, is a group of inventors having a common interest in helping each other and newcomers get their inventions moving along the right track. Expert speakers and members are available to provide guidance to inventors in product development, prototyping, marketing, patent protection, and related topics.  Many IANE members have decades of experience and can provide valuable insight into the often perplexing invention process.

Despite meeting at MIT, IANE members typically invent "low-tech" products - housewares, tools, sports and fitness equipment, toys and games, etc.
