Learn how to assess the strengths and weaknesses of a potential patent application

Do you have a concept or invention that you want to patent? Are you a potential first-time patent application filer? Are you interested in learning how to search public patent databases to find patent literature similar to your invention? 

Join us as we help you jump-start your entrepreneurial innovation journey, by guiding you through the pre-application process. Our free, two-day virtual workshop will show you how to search public patent databases to determine if your idea is completely new or has never been used for the same purpose before.

Participants may also choose to participate in one-on-one assistance.
