Workshop Abstract

This Workshop will discuss options available for entrepreneurs and businesses once they obtain intellectual property protection for their ideas. One option includes self-manufacturing, yet most often small businesses must license their property rights to get a foothold in the marketplace. This workshop will discuss legal and business strategies to be pursued to maximize value of intellectual property assets. One or two industry leaders will be co-panelists.
