PatentDive Awarded $750,000 National Science Foundation Grant

New Orleans-based PatentDive, which builds applications for invention disclosures and patent drafting, has been awarded a $750,000 Phase II SBIR Grant from the National Science Foundation to expand its software.

“PatentDive gives inventors the power to easily break down their inventions, automatically generating complete patent documents for you,” shared the company.

The company’s Invention Disclosure software allows for rapid drafting of patent applications for submission to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

“When starting a business, filing patents is often one of the first things needed, but it can be an intimidating process. This funding will help us achieve our vision of making the patent process easier to understand so that tech startups can get to market faster,” said Eric Leininger, CEO of PatentDive.

PatentDive is also partnered with Xavier University’s computer science department and will soon be partnering with the University of Louisiana – Lafayette.
