Ideation, Provisional Patents

From Idea to a Provisional Patent, in minutes! Only $200!

Whether first-time or experienced inventor, a Provisional Patent Application (PPA) may be your best step to IP protection. A provisional application establishes an early effective filing date for a future non-provisional patent you file.


senseIP's Ideation service acts as co-pilot to get your innovation on the fast path to protection and success. Simply converse with our patent-aware chat bot, "AL-E," who will analyze, refine and draft your provisional patent in minutes. With the status of "Patent Pending," you have protected your innovation and have 12 months to file the full Non-provisional Patent (NPP) - senseIP can draft and file this NPP for you too!

Learn how our Ideation service and PPA filing works below. 


Provisional Patent Application (PPA)

1. Step-by-Step AI-based chat

Start by sharing your idea with
AL-E, our
patent aware, AI chat-bot. You can start by typing something as simple as a short, descriptive paragraph all the way to providing a full-blown academic article. AL-E will ask questions, guiding you through the simple, intuitive drafting process.

3. Uniqueness Validation

You don't need to pay additional for a patent search or 'landscaping' as you would with an IP attorney. Our AI engines automatically do the work for you, showing you the most important prior-art segments, and helping you overcome potential conflict issues for a more robust patent filing. 

5. Go, No-Go

In a few short minutes you'll know exactly how 'strong' your idea is, and with our chat-bot assistance, you can improve on its strength, letting you make the final decision on whether to file for your Provisional Patent?

7. The future is bright

The Provisional Patent Application secures your filing date for 12 months. Within 12 months from the provisional filing, you will need to decide if you want to file a Utility (Non-Provisional) Patent Application (80% of applicants do file an NPPA). Our platform will help you with that process as well. With the same speed, insights, effectiveness and affordability, we will be there for you until your full application is granted. Read about our non-provisional patent applications

2. Know your invention

Our AI chat-bot isolates the concepts behind your idea, and helps you crystalize the important aspects of your innovation to speed up the drafting process and make your idea clear and more defensible.

4. Know your competition

senseIP provides insights on the competitive landscape related to your innovation. Learn who the major players are in your field of innovation, what's the status of the IP in that field, and how it has changed over the years

6. File on-the-fly. You're done!

With a single click, your provisional patent application is ready, and filed for you. You now have the title of "Patent Pending", and you can start working on developing your idea, and sharing it with others while knowing your IP is protected.

8. But wait...there's more!

Even though your provisional patent is filed, our system is not resting. It keeps monitoring your idea against every new published patent, alerting you on potential issues, helping you improve the protection of your idea as you get to know more during the R&D process.
