One-day trademarks boot camp

Join the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a one-day trademarks boot camp on October 5, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT, at Region 10/West Central Small Business Development Center in Montrose, Colorado. This is an in-person, single-day workshop for entrepreneurs, small businesses, and startups in communities with limited or no internet access.

The event explores what trademarks are, the benefits of federal trademark registration, and the basics of the registration process. You'll also learn why it’s important for any new business to select a trademark that is both federally registrable and legally protectable.

Topics will include:

  • Trademark fundamentals and searching
  • Applications and filing trademarks
  • Responses and trademark registration

There’ll be plenty of question-and-answer sessions throughout the day, plus a discussion about free resources available through the USPTO. 

This event is free, but registration is required. For registration information, questions about the one-day event, or the One-day patents and trademarks boot camp series, please email Andriae M. Holt at
