LegalCORPS: Free Inventor Assistance Program

  • Jun 26, 2014 · 6:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Janet Schafer, a lawyer since 1984 and a patent lawyer since 1986, who is now retired from the private practice of law, has been the Administrator of the LegalCORPS Inventor Assistance Program since its inception in July 2011. Janet is a farm girl from Kansas and has a bioscience background.

Schafer will talk about their free legal services, requirements for getting into the program, and what kinds of assistance is provided.

About the Meetup

Meet other entrepreneurs and independent product developers.   Bring your questions and "group-source" the answers.  Hear from specialized experts willing to share their insights.  Get energized and stay motivated to pursue your goals.  Relax and have interesting conversations.  Participants have found clients and collaborators through this Meetup.

Software, electronics, life sciences, med tech, services, products, materials, designs--innovators of a wide variety of value propositions participate. Both for-profit and non-profit entrepreneurs participate.  Many are starting their second or third business.  A partner in McKinsey & Company (NYC) turned up one evening. We have enjoyed meeting people from China, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Italy, India, Bangladesh and other countries.  Many are newcomers to Minneapolis/St. Paul.  Multi-generational, our age range has been 20 to 70+.  Several investors make periodic visits for those of you looking for capital.

Let the host know what kind of expert you would like to have at a future meeting and feel free to refer speakers.

    Hopefully I can meet the people I need to that can help me launch my Face Book platform game kick starter successfully.

    My regrets - I'm double booked for this night. Looking forward to meeting with you in the future.

    Sorry that I won't be able to attend, but I have another commitment that evening. LegalCORP is a great program though (I have done some volunteering for that organization, as have others in my firm), so I recommend that others who are interested do attend.

    Janet Schafer and Clyde Hanson... I REALLY wish I could attend this event. It's extremely relevant to what my team and I are in need of help in, but it falls on the same time I will be speaking at a Google event. Would you be open to connect on this subject or give a recap after June 26?

    Thank you so much for organizing this. Holly

    I have prepared a couple of patent applications under this program which, by the way, is sanctioned by the US Patent and Trademark Office. As a matter of fact, MN was the first state in which this program was started.

    This is a great program to help inventors who don't have the cash to invest in patent applications.
