Or, pay $25 (cash) at the door. Description: Venture capitalists love it when they know you’re protecting a critical component of your company’s value -- your intellectual property (IP). From patent prosecution to patent litigation defense, statistical analysis suggests that most startups are probably paying up to 10X more than necessary for potentially worse results. At this event, the speaker will discuss how entrepreneurs can cut their patent-related expenses by 90 percent and get the patent protection that venture capitalists want to see in the startups they invest in. Please come with your questions, concerns, and scenarios.
