Patent Pro Bono Program: Pathways to inclusive innovation (In-Person)

March 9 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Event for Patent Pro Bono Program inventors and small businesses to discover pathways to pursue IP protection and commercialization.

Join the USPTO Patent Pro Bono Program at our event on March 9, 2023 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We will welcome leaders in the intellectual property (IP) and small business community who will share their stories and tips on how to protect your IP via patents and trademarks, and how to access Government resources for starting and maintaining a successful business.

This event welcomes all entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs who are interested in learning more about succeeding in business, including information on identifying and protecting your intellectual property, securing options for funding, and expanding your network.

The Patent Pro Bono Program is a collaboration between the USPTO and 21 independently operated academic and nonprofit regional programs. Collectively, the 21 regional programs match financially underresourced inventors with patent practitioners in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. You can find out more about the Patent Pro Bono Program, the regional program in your area, and how to access pro bono resources at our Patent Pro Bono Program page. For questions, contact
