Who can help me make my product?  If this is the question on your mind, you’ll want to join us to learn about how to develop a realistic view of manufacturing options for your product.  In this third class of the Beyond Customer Discovery for Product Entrepreneurs series, you’ll learn about ways to make your minimum viable product (MVP) as well as how to develop a supply chain for the early stages of your startup.  We will present a landscape of resources you can tap into and teach you how to find the manufacturer you need.  If you have an idea, but need in help in turning it into a physical product, please make plans to attend.  (Note that in order to register for this class, you must have completed the ATDC Customer Discovery Class.)

The Beyond Customer Discovery for Product Entrepreneurs series is designed to educate and inspire the entrepreneur making a physical product. The series addresses the unique characteristics of product companies and how the path through the startup phase progresses. Other classes in the curriculum include Product IP Strategy, Creating Your MVP, Scaling Up, and Financial Literacy for the Product Entrepreneur.

    About the Class

    Protecting Intellectual Property (IP) is certainly important, but where does fit in the many priorities of any Startup business? We will address this important question in a round table fashion where attendees are encouraged to share their IP journey.  At the roundtable we will have a successful startup CEO and attorneys/advisors who have shepherded many Startups in the past with IP. This class is for any Startup aiming for long term success and wishing to learn from and network with IP experts.

    What you will learn:

    • What aspects of IP are most important to address and how should a young business address them?
    • How does IP and employment intersect?
    • What are best practices for IP security that don’t include filing for a patent or copyright?
    • What are the dangers and pitfalls of ignoring IP questions (or spending too much time focused on them)?

    The following subjects will be addressed over the course of the four-part series:

    1.       What Startups Need to Know About IP

    2.       Finding Value for Your Startup TODAY Using IP

    3.       How Does the World View You Differently Before/After IP?

    4.       IP in Action: How will you most likely use IP assets over time?
