Inventor of One For The Road.



Dan Malin
In & Out Truck Toolbox
Dan MalinI just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity to be part of the Chicago Inventors Organization. As a first time inventor, I am thrilled to be part of it and the 2014 Inventors Conference showed what all your selfless efforts are about. This is the best group of people and support system a new inventor could ask for. Your dedication to the group is truly appreciated and does not go unnoticed. With CIO’s help, I have been able to move my lightweight, one person installation, self securing, removable toolbox invention, the “In & Out Truck Box” to the level I have, in such a short period of time. I could not be prouder to be a member of this great organization. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the Conference and hope to be able to become one of your sponsors down the road as I get the “In & Out Truck Box” on the market. I will never forget where I came from, nor would I want to have another home base other than the CIO.


Corvet Williams
Chunky Jewelry Organizer
Corvet WilliamsI never thought “regular people” like me could actually invent and be able to bring a product to market. An old friend of mine went to the Conference in 2011 and I was just tagging along, didn’t even know what the event was about. That day changed my life! I was wowed by the exciting opportunity that all these ideas in my head could actually become a reality for me. I joined CIO and have not looked back. I have met so many helpful people and learned so much valuable information, from patents laws, manufacturing, licensing, etc. I have a patent on my first product the Chunky Jewelry Organizer and working on 3 others. I’m grateful for such a great networking organization.


Thomas Ross
Twin Gear Assembly
Thomas RossFounding the Chicago Inventors Organization with Calvin Flowers ten years ago has been one of the high points of my inventor career. Having acquired a patent on my “Twin Gear Assembly” retrofit for bicyclers wanting speed and power without excessive gear shifting inspired me to help other inventors with their product ideas. CIO was my vehicle for seeing my creative dreams as well as other’s dreams become a reality. My “King of the Road – Twin Gear Assembly” with CIO’s help is ready to contribute to meeting the energy challenges that confront our nation today.
