Innovation drives economic growth in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley. Despite this truth, startups, university spinoffs and SMEs often have trouble capitalizing on their innovations through intellectual property. When faced with massive budget restraints and constantly-shifting market pressures, startups often relegate IP asset management to the back seat.
On September 26, 2012 IP Checkups and IPfolio will present a panel of industry experts to demystify the brave new patent world for startups. Join us for a lively debate on the pros and cons of pursuing alternative patent strategies, especially in the wake of the America Invents Act.
