Lunch & Learn: All About Patents @ Invent Coworking
Mar 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Invent Coworking would like to invite you to have lunch and enjoy an educational talk with other professionals and entrepreneurs. Our selected speakers are designed to provide useful knowledge for growing businesses, professionals, and entrepreneurs. Lunch will be provided during the hour-long talk followed by a short Q+A. You will also have the opportunity to make professional connections and network with other Bellingham professionals in our vibrant coworking community. The topic for the March Lunch & Learn is “All About Patents: From Filing to Enforcing” and the presenter will be Dwayne Rogge.

Rogge works as a patent agent here in Bellingham and he earned a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education (Physics and Math) from the University of Idaho where he also studied Physics, engineering and computer science. He was a research assistant at the University of Idaho in the Chemistry Department for three years working on cryogenic laser spectroscopy. His background with the Navy working on electronics, and hydraulic systems is also beneficial to his understanding of technology.

Prior to coming to Schacht Law, Dwayne was a technical consultant for SEED IP in Seattle for several years.

In addition to his understanding of physics, chemistry, and computer science, Dwayne has an aptitude for mechanical engineering and education. As a patent agent, Dwayne is able to focus all of his time on patents, and keeping up to date with laws and court decisions, as well as the best methods for achieving patent protection for our clients; especially in the area of design patents. He has been practicing patents since 2006.
