Phase Two: Prepare 

Before the patent office - In the second phase of your patent journey, you will want to start your patent the right way with honest due diligence, including a patent search. But you need more than a patent search to succeed.

What information do I need to protect?

Determine what you can patent, trademark, or hold as a trade secret.



Provisional vs. non-provisional?

Decide based on the stage of R&D and your market.




When can I safely market my idea?

Goldilock's Rule applies: be neither too late nor too early to tell the world about your ideas, but time it just right.
