A start-up in the solar energy field had piqued the interest of a venture capital group. They approached me eight days before a hard-to-schedule meeting with the VC group, needing to protect their IP worldwide before disclosing it.


GMI worked closely with the lead development engineer to use his prototype drawings and invention disclosure as a foundation for drafting and filing a provisional patent application before the VC meeting.


The start-up was able to rapidly protect their invention, timed to their own critical business demands.
