Webinar #11: Negotiating Deals
Thursday, December 16, 2010 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EST)
Foresight Science & Technology introduces a new webinar series -- Roadblock Removal: Avoiding Obstacles on the Road to Commercialization. This webinar series will highlight obstacles that commonly appear, helping companies to anticipate and find paths around obstacles on the road to commercialization.
Each month, this twelve part series will feature a topic critical to commercialization success. In total, the series will critically examine the entire process from invention conception to revenue generation. We take the perspective that sound planning can bypass many roadblocks commonly encountered. In other cases, roadblocks can be converted into opportunities by re-calibrating market focus and business models. Join us in this grand tour of Commercialization in 2010.
