Venture Catalyst Knowledge Exchange Webinar: Nuts & Bolts of Intellectual Property Protection for Early-Stage Startups
Most startup founders have been exposed to basic information on the standard types of intellectual property (IP) – patents, copyright, trademarks, and trade secrets – and understand that IP is one of the most important assets driving company value. However, many founders struggle with applying this basic knowledge to their company strategy and face challenges in grasping the nuts and bolts of protecting their IP. This is especially the case for student and alumni entrepreneurs where the university is not involved in protecting and licensing foundation IP. This talk, led by experienced IP attorney and UC Davis alumnus Todd Ostomel will provide practical insights for founders of science and technology-based companies and address topics such as:
• Best practices for cost-effective IP protection and procurement
• Common strategies and approaches
• Avoiding common mistakes
• Timelines and budgets for patent protection
• Timelines and budgets for trade secret protection
• IP disclosure forms
• Non-disclosure agreements and material transfer agreements
• IP audits and engaging an IP attorney
