What all inventors, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and start-ups should know about design patents. Given the recent increase of litigation between companies over design patents, there is far more interest but little knowledge behind design patents. While many individuals and organizations seek protection for their ideas with utility patents, protection of industrial designs is becoming necessary. Come join us to learn more.
The evening will be a panel presentation comprising of Mindy Bickel (USPTO), Peter Thurlow (Jones Day) and Linda Shudy (Kenyon & Kenyon).  The intended audience for the seminar is inventors, entrepreneurs, students, and small business owners.  Please note that you must RSVP to gain entrance to the building.

Many local businesses shy away from social media.. this a simple approach that is tastefully  executed!

A Counter-Narrative on Black Male Students: At Central High School’s Black History Month Celebration, the Central and Centennial High School African-American…

Bonnie Sandy‘s insight:

A Suit & Tie may help others accept you, but your real power is in how you define yourself! - Inventor Entrepreneur, Business owner , employer, Leader all words NOT in this narative… something is very wrong in short.   

Apparently the message our young men are hearing is  

• Do not be gangsters and thugs.
• be employees and volunteers.
• be scholars.
• be athletes.     
All good but is it enough…..

Black men you have not only the right to aspire but the duty to run businesses, to invent things, to take risk, to employ others 

You cannot be a parent without feeling a bit mushy over these young men! Oh how cute! As I read the accompanying narrative I became alarmed… some words some very important words were missing.  By 13 my son understood he had teh power to start his own  business. I reinforeced that he had the right to define himself as a business owner , employerer, Leader…. it was not about the price point  or look of his clothing but the strength of his character. 
He has been around male leaders, men who  ran their own businesses, were into technology, took entrepreneurial risk… he has not always appreciated this… but  they have shaed his perception of who he could be…
