You just had an amazing idea for a product today, and tomorrow you're meeting with investors or potential customers to discuss your idea. You are hesitant because you know disclosure will be a potential problem in obtaining patent protection. On the other hand, a patent filing may take weeks of work.
What if you could just upload your idea/presentation to a system that will automatically detect the inventive step and provide you a draft of a provisional application as well as some basic analysis of potential competition and relevant prior arts? Now you can! and for the cost of the actual provisional patent filing, it's a no-brainer.
senseIP's startWright allows you to start with an abstract high-level idea, and in a few minutes crystalize the main unique concepts, validate them, get competition insights and automatically file a US provisional patent application, granting you the "patent pending" title.
A provisional patent application allows you to file without a formal patent claim, oath or declaration, or any information disclosure statement. It allows the term "Patent Pending" to be applied in connection with the description of the invention.
Provisional applications can help inventors get an early "foot in the door" towards a patent on their innovation. The filing cost is minimal ($75 to $300, depending on the company's size), and the bureaucracy behind it (no formal patent application structure is required, no supporting documents, IDS, etc.) is also easy to handle. A provisional patent allows you to safely expose your idea to investors, to potential customers / partners while having the patent-pending title behind your innovation.
