Dear E-Club members,
I am excited to announce that we have invited experienced attorneys at Morrison & Foerster, Dr. Janet Xiao and Dr. Scott Carter, to host an IP workshop in the upcoming July event. In this workshop, you will learn about the legal side of founding a life sciences startup, and what it takes to setup your new venture for long-term success. This session will arm you with the knowledge an entrepreneur needs to manage the IP and licensing aspects of launching and growing a startup, and to avoid common mistakes that can have serious consequences down the road. Recent case studies will be presented throughout the program.
Topics covered by this session include:
- What constitutes a strong patent portfolio
- Legal requirements for patentability; recent changes in the legal landscape
- Overview and key considerations of the patent application process
- Key considerations during the IP due diligence process
- In-licenses (universities, research institutions, and research tools)
- Planning for collaborations and out-licenses
This is a great opportunity to learn from experienced attorneys in the Bay Area who counsel innovative companies at all stages of growth. Come to spend time and share insights with fellow E-Club members, partners and collaborators.
Please register here by Friday, July 21th if you would like to join the event. Look forward to seeing many of you on July 22!
