The USPTO is hosting a “Pathways to Inclusive Innovation” event on October 11, 2023 at 12:30 p.m. in Alexandria, Virginia. The event will be held in the Clara Barton auditorium in the USPTO headquarters building located at 600 Dulany Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314.
This event welcomes all entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs who are interested in learning more about business, identifying and protecting intellectual property, securing funding, and networking. More information about the event can be found here.
Immediately following the event, the Pro Bono Advisory Council will be holding a follow-on program, which is also open to the public at no charge. A separate registration is required to attend.
Also, patent practitioners can volunteer for the Patent Pro Bono Program through their local patent pro bono program. Please see https://www.calawyersforthearts.org/for-attorneys or www.uspto.gov/probonopatents for more information on how to volunteer. The local program screens applicants using criteria that include: (1) household income; (2) knowledge of the patent system; and (3) possession of an actual invention (not merely an idea) to ensure that each inventor or small business is a good candidate for assistance.
