Eric Leininger

Eric Leininger holds a PhD in Cell & Molecular Biology (Neuroscience) from Tulane University. He is also a USPTO-registered patent agent. He has over 10 years of hands-on programming experience in a variety of programming languages. Moreover, he has the unique perspective of being both a patent professional and an entrepreneur.

While helping prepare patent applications for other entrepreneurs, Eric found it was difficult for patent professionals and entrepreneurs to effectively communicate about the invention. Therefore, he wrote software to facilitate better communication, which speeds up and helps alleviate the pain of the patent preparation process. Then, with funding from the National Science Foundation, his early prototype eventually led to the formation of PatentDive.
