ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:

We go into a deeper dive look reviewing issues around whether you wish to keep your invention a Trade Secret or go pursue a Patent. This is an opportunity to learn how to think around the cost-effectiveness of these distinct business strategies in the technology development ecosystem and how to be effective in a lean and scrappy manner.

 


SERIES DESCRIPTION:

This series of webinars will explore various advanced IP topics with the assumption of a basic understanding. The focus of this Webinar series is to help bridge the knowledge gap on Intellectual Property Law Issues between the US Government and various stakeholders in the “University-Based Startups Innovation Ecosystem”.  A key attribute that make this webinar series unique from other programmatic endeavors is the ability to directly deliver “Thought Leaders” in the field who will address various IP issues from an applied, pragmatic, and deeply experienced viewpoint. Through  participation in this webinar program, the audience will be afforded both the opportunity to understand and retain best practices when deriving appropriate IP-Strategic Frameworks coupled with Business and Technology Development, as well as gain access to a much more comprehensive and holistic viewpoint on why Intellectual Property Law is such an important economic tool in the “Entrepreneur’s Toolkit”.
