Sponsorship: Help us celebrate the profession

The Patent Olympiad is framed as a contest, but it is more than that: it is a celebration.

And, like similar festive events, part of our aim is to create community, and a sense of pride in that community.

Patent searching often seems esoteric.

Many outside the realm of intellectual property have no idea what patent search is, or why it matters. They have no idea why there are tools for it, or special courses, or what it takes to be really, really good at it.

We'd like that to change.

We want patent searchers to take pride in what they do. We want them to be fantastic at it. And we want others to realize just how amazing this profession can be.

If you’re a part of the patent information community, then you know why the work you do matters.

Let’s celebrate it, together.
