inovia Celebrates Reaching 10,000 Patent Applications and Counting

Milestone Demonstrates Company's Unparalleled Expertise and Leadership in Foreign Patent Filing

inovia, the leading foreign filing platform provider, today announced that it has sold and processed its 10,000th individual patent application, a corporate and industry milestone that demonstrates the company’s unmatched level of expertise in the foreign filing industry.

Founded by patent attorneys, inovia has pioneered filing technology and combined it with a global agent network to reduce the cost and complexity of foreign patent filing. More than 1000 companies, law firms and universities have used inovia’s solutions, pctfiler, epvalidation and iptranslator, for PCT national phase entry, European patent validation and patent translations.

“In his book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell talks about the ‘10,000-Hour Rule,’ where he claims the key to success is a matter of practicing a specific task for a total of 10,000 hours – and I can’t help but think inovia has reached its own monumental level of success with the process of our 10,000th patent application,” said David Nelson, CEO, inovia. “This is an amazing statistic and one that gives credence to inovia being the best foreign patent filing platform in the world.”

inovia will be exhibiting at Booth 530 at the INTA Annual Meeting, May 14-18, in San Francisco. To schedule time to speak with an executive at the event, contact Cara DiSisto at 646.237.3870 or cara.disisto@inovia.com.
