In an increasingly competitive global marketplace, entrepreneurs must work hard not only to differentiate their products and services, but also to protect their intellectual property (IP). IP is a vital part of a company’s vitality and growth and directly impacts bottom lines and business strategies. In “Tech Startups and the Patenting Process – Founders’ Views from the Top,” distinguished panelists will share their experiences in obtaining patents from their perspectives as founders, company presidents, and CEOs. The panelists will cover essential patenting information for entrepreneurs, such as when they patented, what they patented, how long it took, how much it cost, issues, obstacles, and lessons learned. Afterwards, the panel will take specific questions followed by a general audience Q&A led by partners from Stamford’s Whitmyer IP Group, who will discuss best patenting practices. IP Panelists:
Jim McKenna, President, Certascan Technologies, LLC
Hugh Seaton, CEO, Aquinas Learning
Nadav Ullman, CEO, Dashride, Inc.
