Key takeaways

Inventors are the driver transforming and moving society forward through their creations.

Whether it's updating older tech, or creating new break-through inventions, patents have the potential to be every inventors greatest asset.

Patents should be viewed as a natural outcome of innovation, rather than something to chase in their own right.
