Community Talk: Intellectual Property Strategies for Entrepreneurs

March 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

VenCaf Startup Education Community Talk 300 x 300

Your start-up company needs to protect its innovations to grow market share, and a strong patent strategy is one of the key components to success. How will you afford a patent strategy? How will you figure in patent costs when you have so many other expenses right now?

Highlights include:

  • Timing for filing a patent application favors the first inventor to file a patent application, not the first person to invent – file your patent early or lose out entirely.
  • Find out which innovation must be protected first – what you can’t live without.
  • Hear about the precautions to take when approaching third parties, such as vendors and possible partners in technological development – protect your innovation from others.


Presented by Mark Solomon, Principal, Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds
