We are NC LEAP
Founded in 2007 as a project of the NCBA’s Business Law Section, NC LEAP is the only program of its kind in the United States that serves clients statewide. Since we began providing services to low-wealth entrepreneurs, NC LEAP has assisted more than 2,500 small business owners in our state through education and legal representation. To enhance our entrepreneurial support, the NCBA Foundation, in collaboration with the USPTO, expanded the scope of services under NC LEAP to include a regional Inventor Assistance Program. The NC LEAP Inventor Assistance Program is designed to assist qualified inventors and small businesses in North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee with gaining pro bono access to the services of registered patent professionals.
