An invention is a unique or novel device, method, composition or process. It may be an improvement upon a machine or product, or a new process for creating an object or a result. An invention that achieves a completely unique function or result may be a radical breakthrough.
During the past eight years, the DaVinci Institute has been developing the Inventors Showcase, a place where Inventors in all stages of development could share their inventions with people of interest. In this year's event the DaVinci Institute has partnered with the Denver Mart and Events Etc to grow the event improving the experience for inventors and for consumers.
In tough economic times, inventors bring hope and inspiration to everyone they touch and have the potential to bring exciting new jobs along with them.The inventions being unveiled at this event are a powerful force.
