Strategic Patent Management for Entrepreneurs
As someone engaged in technology commercialization, you know that patents are vital to your success. But to develop and implement a strong patent strategy, you also must juggle other critical priorities including fund-raising, research, product development, partnering and managing other technologies and patents -- none of which you can afford to drop.
This workshop is designed with you in mind. We’ll show you highly effective techniques used by scientists, engineers, startup CEOs and technology managers to take control of their patenting strategy, generate better returns on patenting investments and extract valuable competitive intelligence from patent data.
Even without patenting expertise, you can develop a valuable patent portfolio. This workshop will give you practical skills that you can begin using tomorrow, to help you make better use of your experts and ultimately maximize the value of your company’s intellectual assets.
