History and Modern Trends for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Tinkering means figuring out solutions to problems in different ways whether it’s a physical thing or an idea, says author Alec Foege of The Tinkerers, The Amateurs, The DIY’ers, And Inventors Make America Great.

Foegs talks about several topics, including the phenomenon of tinkering, the history behind successful and modern day inventions.

He discusses successful ideas, new products, tinkering trends, patents, crowd fund financing, the dark side of tinkering, such as Wall Street, and he has the audience snickering as he describes flop inventions. Talk includes interesting Q&A.

Tinkering is now such a phenomenon that there is a major space and a three-dimensional printer at the Westport Public Library for aspiring inventors to develop their ideas.
