Seed Funders Program – Limited Extension (until Oct. 1, 2016)

DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND BY LAW FIRMS THAT DID NOT HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR INITIAL ROUND OF SEED FUNDING, THE PROGRAM WILL BE EXTENDED FOR A LIMITED TIME UNTIL OCT 1. 2016.


Since the Patent and Trial Appeal Board (“PTAB”) Bar Association is an inclusive organization seeking the collaboration by all law firms that practice before the PTAB, those law firms that did not have an opportunity to participate in our prelaunch development efforts and seed financing program are now invited to participate for a limited time. The Association is still in its formative phase, having secured initial financing from over 40 law firms. Congratulations and thanks to each of these firms for helping to launch the Association with critical seed financing that was used for website development and reserving the venue for the inaugural conference.

The extension of the Seed Funders Program will provide an opportunity for your law firm to participate as a leader in the PTAB community by providing seed capital that will enable the Association to pay for its initial expenses, including organizing and managing the inaugural conference logistics. All Seed Funders will be recognized and listed with their firm logos on the Association’s website, separately listed in alphabetical order, and grouped by contribution tier. The contribution tiers for the Seed Funders during this time extension are listed below:

DIAMOND SEED ($10K or more)

PLATINUM SEED ($8K)

GOLD SEED ($6K)

SILVER SEED ($4K)

BRONZE SEED ($2K)

Those interested in participating in the Seed Funders Program must complete a payment contract by Oct. 1, 2016. If you are interested, please contact seedfunders@ptabbar.org.
