Honey, I Lost the Code! Common IP Mistakes and How Startups Can Avoid Them

Technology is the main driver of value for almost all startups today. How you build your technology, who you hire and from where, and what practices you put in place to acquire and protect your intellectual property all impact the value of your company. We will cover the most common mistakes made by startup owners when it comes to developing and protecting their company’s technology. From the founder’s initial ideas to forming the company, hiring employees, and developing and commercializing the product, we’ll take a look at the nuts and bolts of how to ensure you are retaining and building the value of your company’s intellectual property rights.
