OUR CORE VALUES
WE FOSTER INNOVATION
Innovation is the cornerstone of the American Dream. Everyone can build the next best mousetrap. US Inventor’s vision is to help teach people that process as well as defending that ability on Capitol Hill.
WE HELP ACHIEVE EXCELLENCE
US Inventor brings together the best and brightest innovators of today to help the best and brightest innovators of tomorrow. We teach, promote, and defend the invention process and business methods involved in developing an idea, making a profit, and changing lives.
WHO WE ARE
PAUL MORINVILLE – FOUNDER
Paul is an inventor with dozens of patents and pending applications. He is the Founder and CEO of OrgStructure, LLC, and an early stage enterprise middleware provider.
In 2013, changes in patent law stopped investment in his company, so Paul started walking the halls of Congress in Washington D.C. educating over 350 offices about the damage caused by patent reform to companies like his and inventors.
He founded US Inventor, a 501(c)4, which continues to work to end anti-inventor patent reforms and promotes strong patent rights for inventors.
RANDY LANDRENEAU – PRESIDENT
Randy is an inventor with three patents. He is a former President and current Board Member of the Tampa Bay Inventors Council, and President of Complete Product Development, a firm that does CAD design, prototyping, and short runs.
Randy started fighting for inventors when the America Invents Act was moving toward passage in 2011. That battle was lost, but when the Innovation Act passed the House in 2013, he teamed up with Paul Morinville in a door-to-door effort in the US House and Senate which helped stop its eventual passage.
He is now using his association with inventors across America to enable a grass-roots effort to restore the rights of inventors in America. Randy is an inventor with three patents.

JOSH MALONE – FELLOW
Josh quit his corporate job in 2006 to take his shot at the American (Inventor’s) Dream. Eight years later, savings depleted and orthodontics and college unfunded, he took one last swing before trudging back to the corporate world. And hit the homerun with Bunch O Balloons. His solution to the 63 year old problem of filling and tying water balloons instantly became the number one selling spring/summer toy. It was just as quickly knocked off resulting in a patent litigation now totaling 6 patents, 5 patent suits, 5 PTAB petitions/trials, 4 preliminary injunctions, and 8 appeals at the Federal Circuit. He is currently a Fellow with US Inventor working to restore the patent system.
