LAST CHANCE! Stanford GSB Lecturer: Using Patents & IP to get Funding and Increase Valuation

user 183425920
San Jose, CA
Last chance to attend a workshop about leveraging intellectual property for startup funding and valuation with Efrat Kasznik, Lecturer at Stanford University Graduate School of Business.

This workshop is based on the curriculum of Ms. Efrat Kasznik’s MBA class at Stanford. It is not a legal session, but rather a workshop exploring the intersection of IP management and valuation that will give you insights into how investors think when it comes to invest in startups and their technology.

Do you want to become a Unicorn but not sure how your IP portfolio can support your valuation and growth?

Do you want to leverage your intellectual property (IP) for fundraising and exit?

IP assets are the most valuable assets for high-tech startups, and yet companies are often struggling with how to manage and grow these assets so they adequately protect their core ideas and products, while at the same time increase valuation and gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.

Networking, dinner and refreshments included in ticket price. Space is limited. Secure your spot early.





- How to create an IP portfolio that will increase your startup valuation

- How to leverage your IP assets for funding

- What are the types of IP value that investors are looking for

- What are the common valuation methods for valuing IP

- What are some of the mistakes to avoid when managing an IP portfolio for startup growth

- How does IP impact Unicorn valuations
