USPTO: Proud Innovation 2023-Inspiring Stories of Excellence and Innovation from the LGBTQIA+ Community

August 3, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm CDT

On August 3, 2-4:30 p.m. ET, join the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and entrepreneurs from the LGBTQIA+ community for the Proud Innovation program. You’ll hear from entrepreneurs like Stacey Pierce and Jules Weldon, co-founders of OME Gear, who overcame struggles to succeed in business together with the Wanderr, a cart and gear hauler that converts to a comfy chair or cot.

Register today and get inspired by their story and many others, and learn how to turn your ideas into commercial success.

Attendees will:

  • Hear how LGBTQIA+ entrepreneurs and small business owners are making valuable contributions to local, regional, and national economies.
  • Learn what steps you need to take when applying for funding to jumpstart your business venture.
  • Discover the resources available to assist with growing your small business.
