I Have a Great Idea. Now what? (How to Make Your Business Goals a Reality)

What is the true value of intellectual property for a start-up? At each stage of growth, having a specific intellectual property strategy that fits into the overall business plan at that stage is often critical to whether a company succeeds or fails. Hear triumphant and cautionary tales from a panel of founders who have achieved scalable growth and intellectual property attorneys who work behind the scenes to help companies reach their goals and formulate key strategies for success. The panel will provide real world examples of the role intellectual property played in their company’s formation, financing, development, and capture of market share, as well as how they view the impact of their portfolio on valuation and exit strategy.
