What is a patent and do I need one? (with Karima Gulick)

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.
