Patents 101

What does it take to get a patent? What is the difference between a provisional and a non-provisional application? What is obviousness?

If questions like these keep you up at night, attend Patents 101 and learn the answers! This presentation will outline the basics of what is required to obtain a patent, how to use patents for your business, what the process is, the perils of prior art searches, and the process (and timeline) involved. There will also be lots of time for questions.

The event will begin at 6:00pm and the first guest speaker will take the stage at 7:15pm. However, starting at 7:00 attendees will be invited to take turns on stage to introduce themselves and share any information they feel is relevant to advancing the agenda of our meeting.

Complimentary beverages including beer and wine will be served starting at 6:30pm so please arrive early so that you can have a drink and network among others who are passionate about Hardware Startups.
