Patent Basics with US Patents & Trademarks Office (July 26)


Live webinar event: July 26, 2022, 11 AM

Whether you are an entrepreneur, inventor, new or existing business owner, you may be considering patenting a product, process, or tool. If you have done any digging, or you have done this before, you know it can get expensive very quickly. Join us and USPTO’s Primary Patent Examiner, Bobby Rushing, Jr., to:

  • Explore the different types of patents, including utility, design, and plant.
  • Define the difference and use of both provisional patent applications and non-provisional patent applications.
  • Discuss the process of patent prosecution, the role of the U.S. patent examiner, and what to expect when working with the USPTO.
  • Learn about low-cost assistance programs for patent applicants who qualify and how CT Small Business Development Center can help.

This webinar is a collaboration between the CT Small Business Development Center and the United States Patent & Trademarks Office.

There is no cost to attend these webinars but advance registration is required.
