#30: Why You Need Patents with Dr. D’vorah Graeser

by | Jan 28, 2021 | Podcast

Today’s Guest

Welcome back to another episode of the We Live to Build podcast.
Today’s episode is so important to every single business owner and startup founder out in the world because patents can literally make or break what you are doing.
That’s why I thought it would be great to invite Dr. D’vorah Graeser to sit down and discuss everything related to them.
Dr. Graeser has a Ph.D in Pharmacology and programmed for the Human Genome Project in the 1990s.
An experience there made her realize that she wanted to spend the rest of her life dedicated to helping founders better navigate the global patent landscape.
That led her to create KISSPlatform, which not only provides services as a patent agency, but also provides a suite of AI-based tools that assist in competitive intelligence.

Let’s give a warm welcome to D’vorah!
