An international support programme required

“I often wonder how many great potential inventions the world misses out on because the inventor lives in a country where it is difficult to develop the idea.”

Jade laid her book aside and stared at Tim.

“You mean because the country the inventor comes from doesn’t have any institutions that provide financial support to inventors?”

“Yes, financial support is one aspect. I was also thinking of educational and research opportunities and even something as simple as a market to buy the invention. There are lots of barriers to inventing.”

“Your right, we need an international inventor support programme.”
