Bristol Innovators Group

Jane Lambert

I have recently come across the Bristol Innovators Group which joined Twitter in October 2019. It appears to have held its first meeting at the University's Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship on 4 Nov 2019:
I have been unable to find a website but its Twitter stream provides a lot of information about its activities:
It has grown rapidly since its formation and now claims over 500 members.   Its "Purpose/Vision" infographic shows exactly how entrepreneurs, inventors, makers and others should collaborate.  I said very much the same thing in An Inventors Group for Northwest Wales on 25 Aug 2020 NIPC Wales.

The Group seems to have managed to continue its activities over lockdown and has planned a full programme of events for autumn:
  • 9 Sep Monthly virtual meetup
  • 25 Sep BIG (Bristol Innovators Group) virtual chat on a topical issue
  • 7 Oct Monthly virtual meetup
  • BIG Pitch
  • 11 Nov Monthly virtual meetup
  • Birthday meetup in the park with marshmallows and hot chocolate
  • 9 Dec Monthly virtual meetup
  • BIG Festivities
The BIG can be contacted at bristolinnovatorsgrouo@gmail.com.   I think the Bristol Innovators Group is a great idea and I wish them every success. Should they ever need a speaker on IP law or any other topic within my expertise that may be of interest to them, I shall be glad to meet them either over the Internet or in person once COVID-19 is eliminated.
