Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
The Boy Scouts of America do good, we all know that. And now they do invention.
According to Fast Company, the 100-year-old organization has teamed up with MIT’s Lemelson program, founded by the father of modern invention in America, Jerome H. Lemelson, to provide a new merit badge: that of invention.
Aside from defining what patent infringement and intellectual property is, there’s the practical aspect to the test, where scouts are expected to build a clay model and then a working prototype of their invention.
