Join Access Silicon Valley in Palo Alto for light dinner, networking, and a workshop: IP Fundamentals #2

When developing a plan to capture and protect a company’s intellectual property (IP), it is important to understand the various stages involved, what stage the company is currently in, and what is coming next. There are three important stages that effect how a company will develop and protect its IP portfolio.

  • “Initial Stage” generally corresponds to the startup phase of the company, often before employees have been hired and before any IP has been captured or any protection sought. (IP Fundamentals #1)

  • “Market Defense Stage” in which the company has reached the market and now faces competition, competition that may be knocking off or otherwise making use of the company’s IP. (IP Fundamentals #2)

  • “Maintenance Stage” corresponds to when the company’s products and the relative status of the competitors in the market are established (IP Fundamentals #3 "Managing a Mature Portfolio")

In the first session Gillespie discussed the issues and concerns that occur even before you start creating IP. Then he looked at what types of IP you will be creating and discussed how each type can help a business achieve and maintain the number one business objective: Premium Pricing.

In this session, IP Fundamentals #2, Noel will cover how you put together a IP plan and portfolio that will help your startup achieve your short term goal – Funding – but that will also lay the foundation for a strong portfolio that you can enforce – all on a budget! Finally, Noel will address common enforcement scenarios that emerging companies often need to deploy in order to protect their Premium Pricing.

The lessons learned in IP Fundamentals #2 Workshop will enable participants to efficiently and effectively leverage their IP Portfolio to get funding and to protect their pricing and position in the marketplace.
