How to Patent an Invention – Alex Hobson – Ep70

Alex Hobson is founder and president of Invention To Patent Services.  He is also an inventor being listed on more than 20 U.S. patents.  He has more than 20 years of experience.

I’ve had other patent agents on the show before, but Alex is a little different. Alex was first a mechanical engineer and actually worked at a same company that I worked at before (, the Goretex company).

He started writing his own patents while at Gore and learned enough to change careers and go on his own writing patents.

We cover all topics of patents including allowance rate, priority date, difference between a patent agent and patent attorney, provisional patents, and more. If you are new or even experienced inventor, this is the show for you.
