Directors Michelle K. Holoubek, Donald J. Featherstone, and Gaby L. Longsworth, Ph.D. will present an online seminar titled "Intellectual Property for Deep Tech" on Thursday, July 30, 2020 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. EDT (2:00 pm. to 5:30 p.m. PDT). This seminar is hosted by venture capital firm Fifty Years.


Understanding the intricacies of intellectual property (IP) is vital to innovators and investors. Deep tech companies win by out-innovating the competition and by building the best products, but they often rely on protective and preventive IP strategies. Despite this, there's a fundamental knowledge gap between founders and legal strategists -- we want to help fix that.

This seminar is an introductory guide into the world of IP applications and strategy, ranging from a basic outline on types of protection to specific offensive and defensive case studies. The session will outline the step-by-step process of filing, applying legal tactics, and maximizing when seeking licensing or acquisition.
