I am committed to helping Wyoming's small business owners and inventors succeed in today's rapidly changing marketplace. That means bringing information about the patent process and procurement opportunities to your doorstep. Every year I host a number of conferences that will help open doors for your business or help make your idea a reality. For more information about my small business and inventor's conferences, please contact my State Director, Robin Bailey at (307) 682-6268 or email@example.com.
