Description

PRESENTATION
Building a strategic patent portfolio is vital to success for a medical product startup. A strong intellectual property (IP) strategy is crucial for securing investing, obtaining strategic collaborations, capturing market share and positioning your company for mergers and acquisitions.

In this talk, we’ll cover the key things healthcare startups should consider to protect and leverage their innovations. By developing a strategic patent portfolio quickly and successfully, a medical product startup can navigate a path to commercial success and potentially add zero’s to its valuation.
