Innovation and Start-Ups: A View from a Full-Time Inventor
Abstract: I am a full time inventor with about 300 patents. I used to work full time for IBM as a Master Inventor and researcher in software testing. I now invent for myself, for those who buy ideas and for startups in Israel. In this talk I will explain what can you do with ideas, and show how being an inventor, not an entrepreneur, can be a job. Lately I have started to give people courses in inventions and while they have not turned it to full time job, many already made money from selling ideas.
