A key cornerstone of any innovation is the ability to protect intellectual property. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) is at the heart of this effort and is responsible for registering new technology inventions. Currently the patent process is a cumbersome, time-consuming and expensive endeavor for entrepreneurs. PTO is challenging Berkeley students to help accelerate their efforts to modernize. This Challenge Lab offers students the opportunity to have a lasting impact on how patents are researched and processed while creating new business opportunities that focus on streamlining processes, accessing information, and reducing the time and cost of patent researching and filing.
