Empowering Inventors Through Education, Access & Advocacy – The United Inventors Association of the United States of America (UIA) is a 501c3 non-profit educational organization dedicated to providing resources to the inventing community, while encouraging honest and ethical business practices among industry service providers.

UIA, the largest inventor association in the world has teamed up with Innovation World and their Alliance Members to support and inspire youth innovation around the globe.  Watch for great things to happen between these two innovative organizations! 

A Letter from the UIA’s President:

Exposure to the inner workings of a given discipline, especially at a young age, is key to developing an enduring interest. Whether sports, music, art, drama or the sciences, introducing young people to these disciplines early cultivates the sort of enthusiasm that often lasts a lifetime. Innovation is no different. And, with entrepreneurship increasingly tied to innovation, there’s a case to be made that our economy’s future rests on cultivating the spirit of innovation in today’s youth. The United Inventors Association is fully committed to this belief, and is thrilled to partner with Innovation World to advance the view that everyone can be a creator, inventor and innovator – especially young people.
