Background Information

Mom Inventors, Inc., a privately held company based in Walnut Creek, California provides quality products dedicated to the purpose of improving family life. Established by Tamara Monosoff, a mother and inventor in early 2003, the company is comprised of three key elements: consumer products with the trademarked Mom Invented® brand, an online community providing Information, Interaction & Inspiration, and educational offerings for women entrepreneurs produced by best-selling author, columnist and AOL Coach, Tamara Monosoff.

Unfortunately many of those unique ideas never reach the marketplace. Recognizing this opportunity, Mom Inventors is determined to support the realization of the dreams of other mothers who are also inventors. Offering web-based collaboration resources and participation in a unique online community through its Website, the company offers an educational and supportive structure for the transformation of inventions to marketable products.
