Are you interested in learning more about how to protect your intellectual property (IP) and the corresponding rights?

The importance grows daily as emerging companies, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and university spin-outs continue to progress early within the life sciences sector of the company. Our discussion will particularly focus on how to determine if a patent application is an appropriate means of protection for the emerging growth company and how to effectively pursue a patent application.

Emerging companies can get straight to work after understanding the steps needed to apply for patents and continue legally pursuing the companies mission.

Presenters will discuss: 

  • A general overview of IP and their importance for a start-up
  • Comparison and contrast of IP rights
  • Patents generally
  • Determining when to pursue patent protection
  • The patent application process
  • Common pitfalls in the patent application process
  • Licensing, enforcement, etc.
