As a women-owned business, we understand the importance of supporting DEI initiatives. Many industries fail to support these initiatives, and the intellectual property industry is no different. Patent Hacks® was born from our desire to democratize intellectual property by making it more affordable and accessible for all entrepreneurs. Our DEI program aims to make that possible for underserved communities by leveraging sponsors to support DEI-focused entrepreneurial organizations nationwide.

The intellectual property industry has been historically male-dominated, but through our DEI program, we aim to promote inclusion that balances the industry and makes it more equitable for all.
