Hi r/business I’ve researched a few topics relating to patents that I would like your opinions on pls: I think I’ve spotted a gap in the market for a product and would like to apply for a patent (pending a search on the patent database). I’m aware of the success rate being exceptionally low if I were to make a private application, as opposed to applying through a Patent Attorney, so I am leaning towards hiring a professional.
What I’d like to know is if anybody from this sub has been successful in their application? If so, do you have any tips you could share pls? And finally, is there any additional support available for young entrepreneurs that are hoping to make an application (I’m 27)?
