Description: When you're setting up shop, or even just considering a new venture, your "secret sauce" can make or break your startup. What is defensible about your value proposition or invention, and how do you arm yourself to pursue and protect this idea? Every successful company, large or small, creates intellectual property. This workshop explores different areas of IP, such as patents, trademarks, and copyrights, as well as ways they can be used to build barriers to entry, attract investment capital, and license as business assets. This session will be peppered with case studies and be highly interactive, so come ready to get your questions answered. Instructors navigate a fictional company through the challenging waters of IP, and field questions in a conversational and highly interactive format.
