The presentation will cover how to access government resources for starting and maintaining a successful business. Leaders in the intellectual property (IP) and small-business community will share their stories and tips on how to protect your IP via patents and trademarks.

Presented online from Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, Georgia, the program is free of charge and welcomes all entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs interested in learning more about succeeding in business, identifying and protecting intellectual property, funding options and expanding business networks.

The Patent Pro Bono Program is a collaboration between the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and 20 independently-operated academic and nonprofit regional programs. The regional programs match financially underresourced inventors with patent practitioners all over the country. See more at the Patent Pro Bono Program page.
