Patent-in-a-Box is on a mission to democratize patents by providing a technology-based process to simply, credibly, and affordably enable any small business owner or independent inventor to apply for a patent without the need for a patent attorney.
Robb Evans founded Patent-in-a-Box to make the benefits of the patent system available to everyone. Their vision is that not only will small business owners accrue the benefits of patent ownership, but our entire economy will thrive as a result of the increased innovation and job creation that is associated with greater utilization of patents.

Q: What inspired you to start your venture?
A: We needed a structure to help us get traction on our venture. We hoped that SEED SPOT would provide that structure, and access to resources, that would help us solidify our roadmap and accelerate our progress in validating our market and advancing towards launch. Our expectations are being fulfilled.
Q: What’s the most valuable lesson you learned during the Impact Accelerator? *
A: One of the most important lessons I have learned is the importance of making and demonstrating traction at every phase of the venture. Making plans for a future event is not good enough. You always need to be getting and demonstrating product-market fit.
