We hope to see you at the next meeting of the Inventors’ Association of St. Louis — Thursday, August 3, 2017!

At this meeting, IASL will delve into what some are describing as the greatest financial invention of our time — one that we are watching unfold before our very eyes: BITCOIN.  This is a meeting that you WILL NOT want to miss!


IASL President Gary Kellmann will be moderating a panel discussion, alongside special guests Chris Rico and Scott Wootton. Chris and Scott are engineers/entrepreneurs who own and operate the largest network of bitcoin kiosks in the St. Louis region, GetSumBits.

Topics will include the cryptographic basis of bitcoin… its past, present, and future outlook… as well as its elusive and mysterious inventor, Satoshi Nakamoto.

Another topics that will be of immense interest to every modern inventor is the concept of the ICO – Initial Coin Offering.  An ICO is a new rapid funding technique used by startups to in lieu of the time-consuming and heavily-regulated capital-raising process required by venture capitalists or banks. The coin in an ICO is a symbol of ownership interest in the new enterprise — in essence, a Digital Stock Certificate.

This meeting will be at the Venture Café/CIC, one of the area’s top venues for entrepreneurs to get together and talk shop!!

Please feel free to share this invitation email with friends and co-workers who may also be interested in learning about this ground-breaking technology. Newcomers are always welcome!

Before and after the keynote presentation, we anticipate another productive meet-and-greet, in which the St. Louis Inventor community can share a beverage with Chris Rico, Scott Wootton, and the IASL Directors.

My fellow Directors — who consist of leaders from their respective fields of invention, manufacturing, intellectual property law, research, finance, engineering, and marketing — are always eager to lend an ear or offer advice whenever needed. Please do not hesitate to reach out at the meeting, if you feel that one or more Directors can be of assistance! You can read the biographies of our Directors HERE.

Also, we expect a sizable turnout for this meeting, so the offline discussions and networking opportunities networking should be extra-special.
