IP FUNDAMENTALS #3: Drive Value for Your Business Managing a Mature IP Portfolio
IP Attorney, Noel Gillespie will explore how to use and manage your IP portfolio to continuously create additional value for a business. Often, a company’s IP portfolio can have value in other verticals, industries and or markets. With proper planning early on (startups) and sound strategy when the time comes (scale up), a company can unlock these additional opportunities and revenue streams, through the sale, licensing, enforcement, and acquisition of complementary IP. Noel will explore a variety of these strategies will be covered as well as how to prepare for them ahead of time so the potential can be communicated to potential investors, buyers, partners, etc. _______________________________________________________________________________________ THERE IS A COVER CHARGE FOR THIS EVENT THIS WORKSHOP SELLS OUT, SO GET TICKETS EARLY.

A variety of these strategies will be covered as well as how to prepare for them ahead of time so the potential can be communicated to potential investors, buyers, partners, etc. 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. The “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. The second phase is the “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. And the third stage is the “Maintenance Stage” that corresponds to when the company’s products and the relative status of the competitors in the market are established. In this session, IP Fundamentals #3, Noel will address the third stage in IP progression, the “Maintenance Stage”. This event applies to startups to well established businesses who want to leverage IP for innovation and new revenue streams.
