Inventor Ric Richardson made a name (and a whole lot of money) for himself when his company Uniloc successfully sued Microsoft for a breach of their anti-piracy software patent.
Ric now lives in Byron Bay and has been mentoring other budding inventors in the area. Now he is lending his time and talent to the North Coast Innovation Festival, an event that features seminars, workshops and forums aimed at helping individuals and businesses translate their ideas into action.
Dozens of events will be held in various locations from Taree to the Tweed throughout the month of May.
The launch of the innovation festival will be held at SAE in Byron on April 29 and the program is available at www.ncinnovationfestival.org.au.
