The beginning of a new year is a great time to review your systems for identifying and protecting the inventions created in your organization.
Here are three invention protection resources that can help you jumpstart your invention activities in 2022.
- Cracking the Patent Code – My book that explains a 3-step system to identify, evaluate, and protect your most valuable inventions. This is the system I’ve developed over the past 20 years and it’s the same system I use with all of my clients. You can purchase the book in print or Kindle format on Amazon. Or, you can download a free PDF version of the book at https://stevesponseller.com/book
- Invention Triage™ Workshop – I will be offering an online workshop for Tech Startups on January 25, 2022. This workshop will focus on my Invention Triage™ process that identifies patent filing deadlines for inventions developed in your organization and teaches you systems for avoiding “accidental” forfeiting of your patent rights. The workshop will help you “Rescue” inventions that would otherwise be lost due to a 12-month patent filing deadline. Keep watch for the registration link and more details coming soon.
- Invention Assessment – This is an assessment of your company’s systems for identifying and protecting your most valuable inventions. The assessment includes:
Step 1: Evaluate your current systems for identifying inventions
Step 2: Evaluate your current systems for collecting and evaluating inventions
Step 3: Invention Triage™ process (mentioned above)
Step 4: Identify changes to improve identification and disclosure of new inventions
Step 5: Develop a company-specific plan for the next 12-18 months
