The Inventors Garage is an online competition for early stage, pre-commercial inventors and innovators with a demo, working prototype or product from proven concept to early commercialisation stag. The competition gives innovators and inventors – from kitchen and garage inventors, to seasoned innovators and engineering students – an opportunity to compete and showcase their inventions at the Inventors Garage with the view on finding early stage financial support, exploring potential markets and share experiences with other entrepreneurs and researchers.
