About Our Guest Devin Miller:

Devin Miller loves startups! He established his own first startup while earning his Law & MBA degrees. Since then, he’s set up several more startups and enjoyed every minute of it. Devin has a real passion for a new business model.

Devin’s an entrepreneur who is also a patent and trademark attorney.  He’s obtained several degrees including a Law degree (JD) and a Masters in Business Administration. He even have degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mandarin Chinese. While working for a large law firm helping Fortune 100 clients like, Intel, Redhat, and Ford with their intellectual property, he quickly realized that there weren’t many good intellectual property legal resources out there for start-ups and small businesses. As an entrepreneur himself, Devin wanted to help other small business owners learn about patents, trademarks, and copyrights so they can build value into their businesses and protect their assets.

In addition to founding and running his own patent and trademark law firm, Miller IP Law, Devin is the co-founder of several startups including a multi-million dollar startup for wearable glucose monitoring. He also runs a product development company that helps startups and small businesses with developing their ideas and products.
