Description

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY STRATEGIES FOR ENTREPRENEURS

Intellectual property should be addressed in a startup’s infancy. IP is one of your most valuable assets, essential in securing venture capital funding or preventing competitors from unfairly competing with you. But do you need to register a patent, trademark or copyright? What about confidentiality agreements or trade secrets? Navigating this legal landscape can be daunting.

After identifying what constitutes your IP—prototypes, logos, taglines, website copy—you must take steps to protect it. Managing your IP is an ongoing process. Intellectual property can be easy to dismiss when overwhelmed by the task of launching a startup, but it’s critical.

Here’s a sample of some of the topics we’ll discuss:

  • What is your intellectual property?
  • Various legal tools associated with IP and when they are relevant to your startup
  • Ongoing management on IP to avoid exploitation

This workshop is for entrepreneurs who want to:

  • Understand the intellectual property of their startup
  • Gain the knowledge to effectively protect their IP

Register for this workshop to learn intellectual property strategies for your startup.
