About the workshop:
Have you come up with the “next big thing”? Whether you are creating cutting-edge technology or improving a well-known product or process, you need to know more about patents. Patents can increase credibility, boost confidence among investors, keep your competitors at bay, and help you profit financially from your creativity. Don’t let someone beat you to it! Learn what you can patent and how, in order to stop others from making, using or selling your inventions, and turn your innovations into lucrative business assets.
A special note: if you attend this session and wish to discuss particulars of an invention you are working on, do NOT disclose any specifics during the open session—you’ll learn why during the seminar!
