You’re an inventor.
You’ve just come up with the idea of a lifetime, a piece of technology that will change the world.
You’re an engineer.
You’ve created a piece of software that will make you the next Google or Facebook.
Now that you’ve created your product, you’ll be rich, right?
Wrong. If you have an idea like this, you need to keep other inventors and other companies from stealing it and selling it, leaving you with nothing. If you fail to patent your idea, you might lose out entirely, watching as others profit and make their fortunes with your idea.
How To Patent Your Startup Idea is an innovative manual that leads you step by step through the complications of the patent process.
Patenting an invention is not an easy task. The process can take years, and for some people it is prohibitively expensive. There are a thousand non-trivial details that may derail your patent attempt if you don’t know about them. With this book, you can make sure that you have everything you need in order before you begin attempting to patent your invention, or even before you start to invent.
My name is Mike Tung, and I work for the United States Patent Bar, specializing in high technology patent prosecution. That means that my job is to go to court for inventors and companies whose brand new million dollar technologies have been stolen by rivals before they ever got off the ground. I’ve seen this happen hundreds of times, where an inventor failed to protect the idea properly.

What Readers Are Saying…
“I expected this ebook to be a step-by-step guide that I could just use to get a patent – it definitely wasn’t that. However, what it did do was point out the most COMMON mistakes that people with an idea (in other words, me) make, mistakes that in the worst case actually cause people to lose their patent!!Thanks guys!”
- Mark from Bloomington, an amateur mechanical inventor
