The BIS brings together a community of inventors and innovators with an entrepreneurial mindset who share the experiences of their challenging journey. I have benefited immensely from this network of like-minded individuals and has helped me develop a brilliantly simple and effective, self engaging child safety doorstop; handisure-protecting little fingers".

A word from our founder

"I have continued to love invention and innovation and have continued to grow that love year on year, decade upon decade. For invention and subsequent development into an innovation, drives our economy and determines our cultural behavior based on habits formed as innovation blossoms and we adapt to new thinking, new ideas, new technology and new environments. Civilisation is a result of  creativity and innovation. Without humankind's staggeringly unique ability to imagine, and then follow through with a creation and physical embodiment culturing seeds of change inside our minds and all around us, where would humankind be today?"

"Dream and Change the World" Kane Kramer. Patron. bis

Apple's iPhone is a consumer phenomenon – but it's not widely known that much of its technology is designed by British companies. In fact, the MP3 player was invented thirty years ago by British innovator, Kane Kramer.”

~ Sir James Dyson
