Saturday Seminars at the Detroit Office
As part of its ongoing outreach to small businesses, entrepreneurs, and independent inventors, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will host its next Saturday Seminar at the Elijah J. McCoy Detroit satellite office on December 7, 2013. Workshop presenters will include representatives from the Detroit business, government, and innovation communities and intellectual property experts from the USPTO’s Detroit satellite office and its headquarters in Alexandria, Va.
All Saturday Seminars provide attendees with practical information about intellectual property, but these free half-day workshops have lately focused on resources and issues specific to inventors and entrepreneurs from minority and underrepresented communities. Topics covered at the December session will include business financing and what it takes to start and sustain viable businesses, how to partner with larger companies for increased growth, and much more. Additionally, presenters from the USPTO will discuss important patent, trademark, and copyright issues for small businesses and provide an overview of the many services the USPTO provides for inventors and business owners.
The USPTO’s Detroit satellite office is located at 300 River Place South, Suite 2900, Detroit, Michigan 48207.
