Getting Million Dollar Fundings and Billion Dollar Exits Using IP

Intellectual property (IP) is critical to high technology startups and large companies. Billion dollar company valuations, asset auctions, and court judgments in high technology relied mainly upon IP, including both patents and copyright. Ownership and control of key IP are essential to control and operate in many if not all high technology markets.

TiE-SV and SABA-NC are pleased to host an expert panel discussion that will provide an in-depth understanding of intellectual property issues that arise in corporate transactions, including the strategic role of IP for a startup and the unique considerations that come into play. Learn how the experts assess IP as a strategic asset and evaluate opportunities to monetize IP while avoiding costly missteps. Our expert panel will also address other essential topics, such as IP portfolio review and management, licensing, valuation, and enforcement. This program is a must for all entrepreneurs.
