Colorado launches new U.S. patent office

Innovation and entrepreneurship have been two pillars of success in the Colorado business sector, and late last month the state launched a new facility to show its support. On June 30, state officials from both sides of the aisle gathered to celebrate what was very much a bipartisan effort — the opening of a new U.S. patent office. 

This shows that the country recognizes the potential in Colorado and is making strides to ensure the bright and innovative minds are given the resources they need to flourish. Michelle Lee, deputy director of the U.S. Patent Office, spoke about the occasion. 

"It's a great example of Washington coming to the innovation community and not requiring the innovation community to come out to Washington," Lee said.

So what does this mean for the state of Colorado's network services? The rapid launch of innovative organizations in Denver, Boulder or any other major city and its surrounding suburbs will require support from internet services that allow these organizations to find their footing in a virtual environment and grow in a manner that's sustainable and economically viable. 

The launch of the patent office signals renewed optimism in the state's innovation sector, and if you are in the process of launching your idea you may find yourself immersed in a far more competitive market than you initially anticipated. There are many things young entrepreneurs must do to get their idea off the ground, including finding adequate facilities for their operations.

Working with business phone service providers can ensure your new company's communication efforts are properly supported. Because so many small businesses fail in their first year, even if they are backed by a great patented idea, it's important to mitigate that risk by equipping the office with adequate telecommunications and network infrastructure. Working with a provider of small office phone systems can ensure you have the right tools in place to capitalize on new business opportunities.
