Do you have the next blockbuster idea?
Are you itching to get your products in front of the likes of Mr. Wonderful and Mark Cuban on Shark Tank?
Well, I can’t tell you how to get on the show, but I can tell you that if you have a product, invention, method, or something that you think is a pretty unique idea and you pitch it to the sharks - they almost always ask if the contestant has applied for a patent.
The topic of patents can be super confusing so in this episode I’m chatting all about it with patent attorney, Karima Gulick.
After listening you’ll have a much clearer idea about what patents are, who needs to be considering them, what the patent filing process looks like and much more.
