04 Apr, 2024

PITTSBURGH, PA, USA — MarketBlast®, a leading platform for connecting inventors with potential buyers, licensees, and investors, is proud to announce its partnership with the Pro Bono Advisory Council (PBAC), an independent 501c3 nonprofit that assists the USPTO with the administration of the Patent Pro Bono Program.

This collaboration aims to support and empower financially under-resourced inventors by providing them with an array of tools for connecting directly with companies seeking to license and commercialize innovation after filing for patent protection through the Patent Pro Bono program. Through the partnership, qualified patent pro bono applicants will have exclusive premium access to the MarketBlast® platform at no cost for one year to accelerate their commercialization efforts.

The Patent Pro Bono Program was established by the US Patent and Trademark Office in 2011 as a nationwide network of independently operated regional programs that matches volunteer patent attorneys and agents with financially under-resourced inventors and small businesses to provide free legal assistance in securing patent protection.

MarketBlast® and PBAC are excited about this effort and the potential it holds for helping inventors beyond the filing of a patent application. With MarketBlast’s platform designed to simplify the connection process for inventors and companies, and PBAC’s commitment to supporting inventors and innovation, this collaboration is set to make a significant impact in the world of inventors and entrepreneurs.

MarketBlast® is offering qualified Patent Pro Bono applicants with a 1-year premium membership for FREE ($480 value) to further the commercialization of their innovation while becoming better educated on licensing opportunities.
