Ideas North West is an inventor group that meets in Blackburn.

IdeasNorthWest was set up by inventors for inventors, they meet on the third Thursday of most months. The inventor group was set up with help from Blackburn with Darwens Digital Development Unit and they have between them helped several ideas get to market.

Given the lack of assistance available for inventors in the UK IdeasNorthWest is an excellent source of support and encouragement, without their assistance I could have given up trying to get any of my ideas to market.

If you are an inventor based in the Northwest of England then it could offer you the support you need to get your invention off the ground, our members who have got ideas to market are more than willing to try and introduce new members to businesses that they already deal with.

The best resource for me was the Digital Development Unit who helped me at several stages, without their help it would have been considerably harder for me to get my inventions to market. If you are an inventor in the Lancashire area then I'd recommend you contact the DDU on Tel. 01254 692692.
