Jay Leno Tonight Show
March 13, 2007

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Airs on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 The segment will showcase selected inventions from the Minnesota Inventors Congress’ 49th annual event Invention EXPOsure™2006. NOTE: The date is subject to change and the list of inventors and their inventions is not available.

Featured at the Minnesota Inventors Congress 49th annual event Invention EXPOsure in Redwood Falls, MN on June 9, 10, 11, 2006 was the Quadribent recumbent side-by-side bikes for two.

The cameras of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno were on hand to tape a Tonight Show segment called PITCH TO AMERICA.

The Quadribent was up for possible inclusion on The Tonight Show. They usually pick inventions that are more quirky and offbeat than ours - and in fact they did.
NOTE: The Quadribent didn't make it to The Tonight Show but it was fun being considered!.

PITCH TO AMERICA is a recurring bit that airs about once a month on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

The NBC TV Tonight Show crew tapes pitches at a particular convention and then 7-12 of these tapes are shown to Jay Leno's Tonight Show audience. The audience then guesses which of the pitches have been SOLD or NOT SOLD to buyers at or after a particular convention.

What is the Minnesota Inventors Congress?

The Minnesota Inventors Congress is a non-profit organization that provides an opportunity for inventors to test market their idea and get direct public feedback. The MIC hosted its 49th annual event Invention EXPOsure 2006 June 9, 10, 11, 2006, in Redwood Falls, Minnesota.

Over the past 48 years over 4,500 inventors have displayed their inventions. Many of them have started businesses or worked with manufacturers to get their product into the marketplace.

Inventors who have exhibited at the oldest annual invention convention leave with a better understanding about whether there is a market for their product and the necessary steps to develop a successful invention.

The Minnesota Inventors Congress provides helpful information guiding each inventor through the process of obtaining patents to marketing products. They facilitate professional workshops at minimal costs to the inventor. Through interaction with other inventors, members enjoy encouragement and support.
