The first step in the process is for you to tell us about your invention, or disclose it to us. To do so, please download and fill out our Invention Disclosure form.
Invention Disclosure Form
Once you have filled out the Invention Disclosure Form, please return the completed form back to us. If you have any questions about the form, please contact Whitney or Ben, and they will assist you.
During Step 3, an OTT staff member will reach out to schedule a sit down interview with you. This is to help us better understand your invention so that we may assess the patentability as best as possible.
After your inventor interview, OTT will begin to conduct a triage assessment on your invention. During this assessment, the invention will be evaluated for patentability, market potential, and barriers to commercialization.
Once the triage assessment is complete it will be sent to you for review. Then, you will schedule a presentation slot to present your invention to the Intellectual Property Council.
