Intellectual Property: Best Practices, Common Pitfalls and Developing a Strategy for Early Stage Companies

May 23, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

This month’s Builder Series is a 75 minute crash course on all aspects of intellectual property (patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets).  We’ll tackle those burning IP questions you’ve been losing sleep over (e.g., why is IP important?) in an informal session ripe for asking questions.

For early stage companies, this workshop will cover key concepts, best practices and common pitfalls to avoid, and leave you with an IP go-forward plan.

Our speaker is Chris Forstner, an IP attorney with Troutman Sanders, that works with companies of all sizes, from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, to develop and protect their IP assets.
