Club E | Minneapolis: Protecting Your Clever Ideas
* You must RSVP at the link below to be registered for this event: Protecting your clever ideas: Intellectual Property and the Entrepreneur Everywhere you look, you see symbols like ®, ™, © and Pat. Pending. But you may not understand the specific purpose of each of these labels. If you’ve ever had a clever idea and wondered how you could protect it in the marketplace, you’ll want to attend this session with the two Daves (Black and Dzurilla). They’re patent attorneys from Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner, and they’ll be clearing up confusion and providing helpful guidance on the ins and outs of intellectual property laws. They’ll answer questions such as: What’s the difference between a trade secret and a patent? Should I trademark my company’s logo? I think I have a brilliant new idea, but how can I make sure I’m not unintentionally copying it? How do I keep my best intellectual property from walking out the door? Come prepared with your questions, quandaries and confusions, and the two Daves will do their best to help. Remember to RSVP here: Thank you kindly - Club E | Minneapolis

What we're about

Club Entrepreneur is a community of business professionals who meet on the first Thursday of each month at the Minneapolis Club for networking, idea sharing and presentations from some of the Twin Cities’ most respected innovators, catalysts and thought leaders.

During each lunch-hour session, you’ll have a chance to enjoy a meal, chat with peers and strengthen your network of personal and professional relationships. There will be a speaker presentation on an informative topic that provides practical, actionable ideas. The purpose behind each session is provide you with the encouragement to go back to your office just a little bit smarter, savvier and more energized than when you left for lunch.
