The USPTO operates the Eastern Regional Outreach Office at our headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, and four additional regional offices, including the Elijah J. McCoy Midwest Regional Office (Detroit, Michigan), Texas Regional Office (Dallas, Texas), Rocky Mountain Regional Office (Denver, Colorado), and Silicon Valley Regional Office (San Jose, California).
Combined, our offices provide services and resources to inventors, entrepreneurs, and small businesses across the United States. Our goal is to promote innovation and stimulate the economy by connecting entrepreneurs to government resources, supporting students and teachers through our STEM education programs, gathering feedback from regional stakeholders, and recruiting diverse talent from the region.
Each regional office offers a variety of services, including events, patent examiner interviews, teacher professional development and STEM workshops, consultations with patent and trademark experts, and Patent Trial and Appeal Board hearings. Additionally, each regional office collaborates with the network of Patent and Trademark Resource Centers.
