Join TiE Silicon Valley and Dave Stevens law group to answer your questions of “Preserving Your Intellectual Property at Time of a Disaster”. Startup finances are bound tight at time of uncertainty, and are stress tested in a time of disaster. The current pandemic is an unprecedented challenge to businesses in every market. Most companies are now in a very strict and conservative mode right now, some even in survival mode. Maintaining a company’s value is imperative, and nothing defines value like a company’s intellectual property. In this webinar, we will discuss how a company can preserve and even grow their company’s intellectual property value. Most often in tech companies, IP defines their value not only in terms of dollar value, but also in terms of longevity. We will discuss how to preserve and grow value in patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and other assets that are precious to a company.
