Why do we need funding for a patent?
Everything starts with an idea! Engineers and inventors are full of great ideas for new products or technology, and improvement on an existing product. In order to protect an idea, a patent needs to be filed, and to file a patent, money will be needed. Funding for patents is needed because the process starts by hiring a patent attorney to file the patent application, then the project will need product evaluations, patent translations, drawings and illustrations. The final stage is to create a prototype which is one of the most important stages because the prototype may guarantee future additional funding.
In order to complete the patent process, a considerable investment of time and effort is required.
To get funding for patents, the first logical step would be to join a local inventors group. Another logical approach is to ask the government for support. Many branches of the government give grants and loans to fund research and development of inventions. However, these grants are usually very specific as to what type of inventions funding is given. Definitively it is not an easy task to find funding for a patent, but business networks such as BusinessPartners.com allows the interaction between inventors and investors ready to provide the funding for a patent.
