Mike Drummond, Editor In Chief of Inventors Digest Magazine www.inventorsdigest.com Mike Drummond supervises content development and marketing of Inventors Digest, the nation’s longest-running print and web publication for the inventing industry. Mike was a Pulitzer Prize finalist as part of a team that investigated the national residential mortgage crisis. More recently, he earned a national integrated marketing award for a web-video and print campaign with nonprofit partner the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance.
Since assuming leadership of the magazine, Mike has reshaped the editorial focus to explore the intersection of business and innovation. He says his main mission is to help inventors succeed in getting their innovations to market. To that end he has created new sections to appeal to specific audiences, including youth, intellectual property professionals, women entrepreneurs, designers, marketers, licensors, engineers, prototypers and others in the product-development food chain. Along the way he has kept the magazine entertaining and lively, and has landed a wide array of luminaries on the cover such as Jay Leno, Ben Stiller, James Dyson, Sally Ride, Joan Lunden, Dean Kamen and Cal Ripkin Jr. Mike also has been successful in forging partnerships with corporations and nonprofits.
In 2011, in partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame and U.S. Senators, he was the leading force to move National Inventors Month to May – an initiative that better aligns the month with the school calendar as well as the annual inventor Hall of Fame ceremony.
