Join the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a one-day patents boot camp on November 14 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT at The Little Brick Church in Oneonta, Alabama. This is an in-person, single-day workshop for entrepreneurs, small businesses, and inventors in communities with limited or no internet access, covering tools, techniques, and resources to understand the patent application process.
