We manage patents for inventions
What are invention patents useful for?
If you become the owner of a patent, you can commercially exploit the invention exclusively. As you read it, invention patents allow you to be the only one authorized to exploit your idea.
Make my idea profitable
Invention patents allow you to develop multiple business models around your invention. You can sell your products directly, ally with potential industrial partners or charge for the right to exploit your patent.
It can be said louder, but not clearer: Patents on inventions are NOT enough to capture the interest of investors and industrial partners. It is key that the patent is accompanied at all times by a your working prototype with the appearance of a final product. Filing your invention with only the patent is a waste of time and money.

Frequently asked questions
What is a patent?
The patent is a title, as if it were a property, that accredits the inventor as the owner of this invention. This ownership is what prevents other people or companies from having the right to commercialize the invention that has been patented. Inventor, it is important that you know that you will have these rights for a limited time.
What is the risk of a patent?
While it is true that owning patents on inventions can leave you somewhat calm, it is also true that it has some associated risks. If you take a look at the official information, you can identify that, in the description of your patented invention, sufficient information must be provided for an expert to execute it. This, of course, reveals relevant secrets about your invention or product.
Is it mandatory to manufacture the invention?
That's right! When you get the patent for your invention, you will have a period of approximately 3 years to exploit the patent. Of course, it can be marketed by you or through a company or person to whom you give these rights. EYE, that's why it is so important before protecting your invention, have a prototype, otherwise, you will have to manufacture your working prototype and seek financing against the clock.
What is an innovation claim?
This is the fundamental point of patents on inventions. The claims are the differential characteristics of your product. When analyzing your competitors' patents, you should pay special attention to these arguments. In Prototecnica, we tabulate these characteristics and thus find "gaps" or opportunities to innovate in the prototype.
How long does it take to obtain patents for inventions?
Like any administrative procedure, there are very well defined deadlines and steps. The good news is that they are all public, so we will have the opportunity to do it ourselves if we think we are capable. The average time is usually between 12 and 36 months. More than the time that elapses from the time it is filed until the patent is obtained for an invention, I recommend you pay the greatest attention to the process of background study and prototyping. These stages are the key to the process.
Methods for protecting inventions
Patents are not the only method or tool available to you to protect your inventions. It is true that it is the most complete tool, as well as the most complex and expensive. The truth is that the methods of protection of inventions are neither better nor worse, they are or are not adequate for each case.
