Every business has a name, a logo, a website, a database of contacts and more, therefore, every business has intellectual property (IP). In today’s digital economy these intangible assets are integral to the survival and success of a business. But how much do our entrepreneurs know about IP? And more importantly, how much do they know about protecting their IP to support long term competitive advantages?

Now, more than ever, a poorly formulated IP strategy poses great threats to our innovation economy. Join us for a high leverage session focused on the real world application of IP topics that can support independent inventors and entrepreneurs in the city of Los Angeles and learn how your IP assets can help you compete more effectively in the marketplace.

The early stages of a startup are complicated to navigate—pitching an idea, raising money, and developing a product are daunting challenges for first-time founders and serial entrepreneurs alike.

      ✓ Shaping company culture
      ✓ Scaling your organization

We hope you’ll join us!
