Get Out of the Garage: Patent Your Idea!
Big ideas are born everywhere. From the research and development labs of our manufacturers to the workbenches of everyday tinkerers, American innovation is alive and well!

U.S. patents grant to inventors the exclusive rights to manufacture, use or sell their ideas and to protect their creations from exploitation by others.

Is your idea worthy of a patent? How do you know? At what point should you take steps to protect it? What services are available to help you through the process? Attend this workshop and find out!
