To supplement its Investor Readiness class series hosted by the Atlanta Technology Angels, ATDC is introducing a new class: Investor Readiness: The Entrepreneur’s Perspective. Please join us as Andrew McConnell, Founder and CEO of ATDC Signature company, rented.com, shares his perspectives, experiences, and advice on raising equity funding from private investors. Andrew prefers his talks to be interactive, so please come to listen, learn, and ask questions.

About the Speaker: Andrew McConnell came up with the idea for rented. after hearing two vacation homeowners tell horror stories of the time and hassle involved in their self-management of the properties. With degrees from Harvard College, Harvard Law School, and Cambridge University, and experience working with some of the largest companies in the world during his time at McKinsey & Co. and Axiom, Andrew is excited to apply all he has learned to the vacation rental industry in order to create a better experience for all.

    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)?
