A little bit about the Inventor Lady… RITA CROMPTON
Welcome to the Inventor Lady site. My name is Rita Crompton. Inventing is habit forming, contagious and there is no cure; I work with inventors who constantly reinforce this belief with their continued success, new ideas and their desire to help others. A unique resolve and passion is required to get a product from the “I have an idea” stage to the marketplace. Most inventors are alone as they go through the process and this reduces the odds of success dramatically.
When I started FLeCusa International, my goal was to bring the corporate environment resources to the individual inventor. FLeCusa International helps inventors understand the inventing process, go to market, establish distribution networks, protect their intellectual property and treat their invention like a business.
Because of my deep experience in marketing and the related skills and business relationships I have acquired over the years, I and my company, FLeCusa, provide a unique service to clients wishing to enter the marketplace or grow their business to a new level, nationally or internationally.
In February of 2006, I, along with my co-founder Warren Roh, started The Inventors’ Roundtable, an inventing roundtable forum which nurtures a large network of inventors in the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies. The Inventors’ Roundtable is a free, safe environment where inventors learn about the invention process, how to protect their invention and how to get their idea to market. Service providers, by invitation only, donate their time to the inventors once a month. In addition, experienced and successful inventors mentor those just getting started learning the inventing process.
The Greater Denver Metropolitan Area is a hotbed of innovation, so The Inventors’ Roundtable reaches out to nearly a thousand inventors who use the group as a primary source of information and encouragement. The Roundtable is backed by the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce and the Small Business Development Centers of Colorado.
Our motto at The Inventors’ Roundtable is “Don’t spend a dime before it’s time.” If you are interested in visiting The Inventors’ Roundtable website, please go to THE INVENTOR’S ROUNDTABLE .
In addition, I have created The Inventor’s Desktop and The Invent Vault. These are services and tools for inventors throughout the US and internationally who cannot physically join us at The Inventors’ Roundtable meetings, but still want to access the expertise of The Inventor Lady as well as the other Roundtable service providers.
