Whether you are an angel investor or entrepreneur, intellectual property issues play an important part in assessing an investment opportunity in an early-stage company. To help us address these issues, we have assembled three well-known subject matter experts who will present and discuss intellectual property from both the investor’s and entrepreneur’s perspective. The topics will include:

  • Intellectual property’s impact on company valuation
  • How a company protects its intellectual property
  • Patent protection, process and strategy
  • How to protect trade secrets and know-how
  • Branding and trademark protection

We will hear presentations from three expert speakers:

  • John Bacon, Founder and Chairman of iP2Biz LLC
  • Greg Kirsch, Partner at Smith, Gambrell & Russell
  • Rodgers Lunsford, Partner at Smith, Gambrell & Russell

The presentations will be amplified with war stories from the presenters’ many years of working with investors and early-stage companies. The session will be interactive, so bring your questions.

Registration is complimentary if you register through Smith, Gambrell  & Russell.
