Intellectual property (IP) can give your business a leg up on your competition, focus your research, give your investors confidence, and protect your business assets; however, it takes planning and nurturing throughout the business development process. This session will provide an overview of the different types of IP, how to acquire and protect your IP, and, most importantly, discuss pitfalls that entrepreneurs encounter (e.g., pitch contests, taking to investors, waiting to consider IP protection). The session will also touch on the pros and cons of incorporating and when it may be a good idea for your new business.
