Protecting Innovation from the Beginning: Establishing a Strong Intellectual Property Position for Obtaining Investment and Achieving Market Success

July 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT

The basics of patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets will be introduced. The role of different intellectual property rights in protecting a company’s core assets and reputation will be discussed. Our focus will then turn to the mechanics and process of patenting innovations and best practices and strategies for obtaining strong and defensible patent portfolios. We will engage with the notion that having a well-thought-out intellectual property strategy and focusing on the patent process early in the research and development life cycle are crucial to success in technology-driven businesses. Finally, we will discuss what savvy investors want to see from a company with respect to its intellectual property positions and strategic outlook. Obtaining strong intellectual property positions that attract investment, partnerships, licensing, and growing market share will be the primary theme throughout.
