U.S.-Based Global Intellectual Property Creation
The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), concluded in 1970, offered a means
for inventors to safeguard their intellectual property in multiple
countries with a single application. This global effort to streamline
the process of achieving international intellectual property protection
evidences the importance of this protection in today's economy.
International intellectual property rights ensure that creators can
reap the rewards of their endeavors, encouraging future innovation and,
ultimately, economic growth.

Based in Kansas City, Missouri, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation was established by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Ewing Marion Kauffman. The Kauffman Foundation's vision is to foster "a society of economically independent individuals who are engaged citizens, contributing to the improvement of their communities." In service of this vision, and in keeping with our founder's wishes, we focus our grant making and operations on two areas: advancing entrepreneurship and improving the education of children and youth.
