Intellectual Property Strategies for Start-ups

September 25, 2014

How to Protect and Capitalize on the Value of Your Innovations and Attract Investors

On Thursday, September 25, 2014, we held an event on "Intellectual Property Strategies for Start-ups" at the new District Hall in Boston.

You have worked hard to get your start-up company on its feet.  You protect it daily against a host of challenges.  Are you protecting some of the most valuable assets of your company - your innovations?  Protecting your innovations through intellectual property strategies, including patenting, freedom-to-operate studies, trademarks, employment agreements, confidentiality agreements and consulting agreements, is critical to the long term success of your start-up. 
 
Attendees learned from intellectual property experts, an entrepreneur, and an executive from a start-up in an early stage.  The panelists related their stories of missed opportunities and key successes. Also, the panelists highlighted certain risk-value tradeoffs of intellectual property.
 
Other highlights include -

  • Identifying your company's valuable intellectual property
  • Avoiding pitfalls that can forfeit your patent rights
  • Determining if patenting your innovation is a necessity
  • Taking action if your innovation has already been patented by another company
  • Determining the best timing to protect your innovation
  • Realizing potential revenue generation for your intellectual property
  • Creating a value proposition for potential investors
  • Applying recent court decisions to your intellectual property rights

We introduced you to the tools you need to identify and protect your intellectual property rights.
