Patent basics

Do you want to learn how to patent your invention? Attend the Maricopa Small Business Development Center (SBDC) online educational workshop. Stephen Koziol, Assistant Director of the USPTO's Silicon Valley Regional Office, will cover patent basics, including the different types of patents (utility, design, and plant), and both provisional patent applications and non-provisional patent applications. The workshop will also cover the patent prosecution process, the role of the patent examiner, and generally what to expect when working with the USPTO. Finally, participants will learn about patent prosecution programs and initiatives available to applicants.

The Maricopa SBDC provides business counseling, resources, and workshops for new and existing small businesses. There is no cost for this workshop. Prior to the webinar, you will receive an additional Zoom registration link. You must register to attend and access the webinar via Zoom.
