The Inventors Club of Kansas City (ICKC) made its debut at the Linda Hall Library, on the campus of the University of Kansas City, Missouri, which is highly respected as one of a few national designated U.S.P.T.O. Libraries. Linda Hall Library carries all of the issued patents, registered trademarks and copyrights. In addition, they are well noted for having one of our nations best and largest collections of Science and Technology information. Linda Hall Library temporarily closed in 2005 to start a major building expansion, so ICKC moved to the nearby prestigious Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. The Kauffman Foundation goals and the ICKC goals are both "dedicated to affecting change in two areas: Education and Entrepreneurial Success!
ICKC is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation with over 150 members. The club was founded in 2004 by C.J. Boylan with the idea that every new business starts with someone's bright idea! They firmly believe new inventions, technology and the unique individuals that create them make up one of our country's most valuable resources! ICKC provides a learning forum for inventor/entrepreneurs and those in allied fields, which supplies mutual benefits to all involved. Their purpose and mission is to provide Innovative Education that will stimulate their members to "Soar to Success" which also benefits both the community and the nation!
