She’s also an experienced educator. For nearly a decade, she taught classes to youth about robotics, animation, and design through an educational non-profit. “Each of our classes consisted of teaching the students how to be life-long learners and how to be creative thinkers at a young age,” she explained.
She has been recognized for her achievements, including being the inaugural youth division winner of the Nexties Awards for Entrepreneurship, as well as the Bay Area winner for the National Center for Women & Information Technology.
Before she knew its official name, Courtney was sold on the concept of licensing. With so many ideas, why start a business for each one when you can license them, she thought.
“Licensing is deeply ingrained in who I am,” she said. “I can come up with all these ideas and focus my energy on creativity and innovation every single day; I’m so enthralled by this industry”.
As the longtime Managing Director of Inventors Groups of America, she runs online meetings for inventors that averages 250 attendees as well as produces a monthly newsletter and educational webinar series with guest experts.
“Inventors are dedicated movers and shakers who are constantly pushing their ideas forward. It is such an honor to be a part of the inventing community— it’s really inspiring.”
In addition to being a zealous advocate for inventors and the inventing community, and developing product ideas for companies, Courtney is a martial artist (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and May Thai), ukulelist and latin dancer. She also enjoys golfing, photojournalism, and dipping her feet into new and invigorating activities.
“Courtney is a well rounded and dedicated coach with a very energetic and motivational spirit. As a coach, she is able to use her wealth of knowledge and varied experiences to think outside of the box, making her able to provide solutions, at the drop of a hat, while also willing to help in seeking out answers else where if need be.
I felt Courtney went beyond her role as a coach, working to understand and get to know me as an individual, while also providing fast and effective feedback throughout the duration of the course and especially the pitching process. I would certainly suggest Courtney as a coach to anyone on their inventing journey.”

I, like most of you reading this review have come across InventRight either through the videos, webinars, books or articles, they’re hard to miss if you are wanting to get into the licensing game. Equally hard to miss is Courtney Laschkewitsch, your all knowing guide to anything licensing based.
When I decided to invest in myself and start the InventRight course, there was only one person I wanted as my coach. Courtney. For weeks I had been listening to her voice on the excellent “Sell Sheet Lingo” video and taking numerous notes. So when it came to her coaching me, it was a case of meeting my hero, and she did not disappoint!
From our first meeting she was as friendly and professional as anyone I have ever met. Knowledgeable beyond belief, yet collaborative with an amazing ability to listen to my ramblings and ideas that comes with having a magpie mind. Every step of the way she had the answers, she knew when to give them freely and when to let me work it out for myself. It’s one of the things that makes Courtney such a great coach. She is there with you and for you every step of the way, guiding you when you need a push and encouraging you when you’re frustrated (and you will be). She is selflessly Invested in you and you can feel it.
She embodies licensing and the inventors lifestyle (try speaking with her for five minutes and tell me she doesn’t infect you with her passion), she is a fantastic spokesperson for the industry and undoubtedly a fast rising star. And she’s only just started. Grab her whilst you can. You will not regret it. I know I certainly didn’t.
Coach Courtney goes above and beyond when coaching. She coaches the way SHE would want to be coached. She got to know me and my wife personally which really meant alot to us. Courtney is all about communication and connection because it helps her be able to coach us. She encourages as much communication as we can with her which makes us feel like we are able to get the most out of the program and that she’s totally willing to meet us where we are at and go at the speed we set no matter how fast or slow. She is very organized, efficient, has her own systems in place and has a great fun/serious sense of humor. She is emotionally invested in helping us make this the career of our choice as soon as possible. We really feel heard by her and know that together the 3 of us (and help from the whole IR community) will get us where we want to go sooner than later, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!! We HIGHLY recommend you!!
