IEEE CTCN Monthly Meeting, Wednesday, March 22, 2017: “Daring to Do Your Own Patent Searches”

March 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

IEEE CTCN Monthly Meeting, Wednesday, March 22, 2017: “Daring to Do Your Own Patent Searches”

Biography: Researching diverse technologies, for clients ranging from individuals to IP attorneys to large Fortune 500 companies, has taught Steve Pearson a great deal about tailoring the approach for various situations. 

Steve is the founder of The Pearson Strategy Group, LLC which provides services mimicking Innovation Boards in patent research, Competitive Intelligence, Innovation Support, and Strategic Development to the technology, power, consumer, and transportation industries.

His second company, Visionex Holdings, LLC, is an intellectual property holding and licensing company.

Steve is the sole individual inventor of three U.S. patents, all for improvements to the evaporator units of air conditioning systems.

Steve served aboard a Navy submarine as a nuclear reactor operator and electronics technician, graduated from UT San Antonio as an electrical engineer, and has worked in various engineering roles in semiconductor manufacturing with Motorola Semiconductor, piping and fitting manufacturing with Applied Materials, and in research and consulting.

Steve is past chairman and currently the Vice-Chairman for the Austin chapter of the IEEE’s Power and Energy Society and mentors for both the TechShop and Profit Movers.

 

Abstract: Patent searches are part science and part art – and often intimidating.  Steve will share some patent research insights with you, and also will touch on other components of prior art research during his presentation.

As a patent research professional, Steve has learned that the methodology is the same for every inventor – large or small: namely, knowing when to search, how to manage your efforts, how to manage uncovered data, recognizing what’s important and knowing when to stop. Plus, you’ll need to know what to ignore and when to search again.
