USPTO, Commerce announce new ‘Women’s Entrepreneurship’ initiative

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the Department of Commerce have announced the launch of “Women’s Entrepreneurship” (WE), a community-focused, collaborative, and creative initiative to inspire women and tap their potential to meaningfully increase equity, job creation, and economic prosperity.

Officially kicking-off with a virtual event from 12 noon to 1 p.m. EST on November 30, plans for WE include a new online hub for aspiring women entrepreneurs that will provide key information on how to get started, identify and protect their intellectual property, suggest options for securing funding, and identify ways to build and maintain a network. WE will also include USPTO’s Women’s Entrepreneurship Symposium series to be hosted in March 2023.
