About ICKC


The Inventors Center of Kansas City (ICKC) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing inventors and product developers networks, resources & tools to develop ideas into viable products.

We help first-time inventors bring their ideas to fruition, serving as a source of education and a guide to entrepreneurial success.

We believe some of our country’s most valuable resources are

  • new inventions,
  • new technology, and
  • the unique individuals that create them.

We provide a learning forum for inventor/entrepreneurs and those in allied fields. We help guide inventors through the idea development process from validation, evaluation, competitive analysis, business planning, funding, prototyping, patenting, marketing, distribution and licensing.

ICKC hosts a monthly inventor meet-up at historic Union Station in downtown Kansas City, 30 West Pershing Road.  Our meet-ups are held the third Tuesday of each month with attendance of 60 to 80 people and boasts a large member-base throughout the region.
