Prizes for this month’s contest are being provided by ODU-IIE, BizConnect, and Patent Portfolio Builders, PLLC (PPB Law). PPB Law is showing its support by offering a startup a free patent application. The application will include the drafting and filing of one U.S. provisional or utility patent application. This process will also include consultations by an experienced PPB attorney to better understand the 757Pitch Winner’s IP and to draft claims that align with their business goals. PPB Law will also cover the costs of the initial government filing fees for this patent application. Patent Portfolio Builders, PLLC is excited for this opportunity to continue to grow its relationship with all of those involved in the 757 region’s startup community. In addition, while at this month’s competition PPB Law is willing to speak with people before and afterward concerning their IP matters and to answer questions.
