Do I need a business or startup to file a patent?

No — anyone can file a patent, including an individual.

Having a business is not required to file for a patent. More so, any individual can file a patent in the US, you don’t need to be a US citizen.

This means, you don’t need a business to work with us either.

We work with enterprise-level companies, small businesses, startups, and individual innovators as well — it’s you, and your idea that matters, not your business background. :) However, we do recommend you make your idea part of your business plan.

Contact us if you have any questions about anything regarding this matter or about your patent strategy!
