    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?
