Your start-up company needs to protect its innovations to break into the market and grow market share, and a strong patent strategy is one of the key components to success. How will you afford a patent strategy? How will you figure in patent costs when you have so many other expenses right now?

Topics include:

  1. Timing for filing a patent application favors the first inventor to file a patent application, not the first person to invent – file your patent application early or lose out entirely.
  2. Find out which innovation must be protected first – what you can’t live without.
  3. Hear about the precautions to take when approaching third parties, such as vendors and possible partners in technological development – protect your innovation from others.

Hear from our guest speaker Matt Carney, Open Standard Industries, about his high-performance reusable elastomeric mask business and patenting experiences.
