Mission Statement

We empower inventors, technologists, and students to publish, find, and collaborate on invention ideas for the good of humanity through direct coaching, team formation, curation of work, publication, co-working and learning events, and material support.

Description

We challenge the notion that inventions should be reserved for patents and profits. Rather, we invite fellow builders of the future to use their skills for humanitarian purpose. We want to make the future better for everyone. To do this we remove, rather than add, legal barriers to the free use of our inventions. All work done with Public Invention is free and open to all under share-alike public licenses.

The Public Inventor of the future is not a lone genius but a person who is part of a community. We empower Public Invention Teams that embrace the interdisciplinary talents that combine to shape the future: inventiveness, design, writing, art, photography, engineering, administration, fundraising, and other skills we cannot predict. All of our work is in service to nurture humanitarian invention.

Recently, much of our work has been focused on our VentMon project, which works to improve pandemic ventilators in the fight against COVID-19. With that, we are working on an oxygen concentrator project. However, we are also working on non-pandemic related projects, such as Moonrat and Rapid E. Coli projects (clean water projects) and Euler Notebook (a stylus-oriented notebook for mathematics and science), among others. We are always looking to take on new and exciting projects working with inventors around the globe.
