The Engineering Entrepreneur Podcast

May 31, 2023

J.D. Houvener is the founder of Bold Patents, a law firm for startups and inventors to get their patents.

He also has his own podcast, The Bold Patents Show, which is in its second season.


He has a background working for Boeing as an engineer before starting his law firm.

We talked about how important it is to write your provisional patent the right way, which is talking about the novel aspects of your invention.

We talked about an example of how JD’s company helped an inventor with a fish lure product.

Don’t be afraid of infringement on your patent. If people are trying to copy you then you have a great product.


Number one tip:

Make sure to get an experienced patent lawyer on your side from the beginning of your invention process.
