EBC and Fenwick & West Present “Strategic IP: Building a Portfolio and Managing Exposure” on October 26

On October 26, the Environmental Business Cluster (EBC) and Fenwick & West will present the final program in the Do's and Don'ts for Cleantech Ventures Series, entitled Strategic IP: Building a Portfolio and Managing Exposure.  An overview of this program is:

Investors want to make sure your patents, copyrights, trade secrets & trademarks are secure so that the value of their investment will increase, not diminish, over time. One little omission in your company’s key pending patent application could lead to your “giving away the farm” downstream. Sharing IP ownership could lead to the loss of your “crown jewels” to a future spinoff.  Hiring an employee from a competitor without the proper safeguards could land you in court.

In this workshop, you’ll learn what to do – and not to do – as you build the IP protfolio of your cleantech start-up and protect it from the claims of others.

The presenter for this session will be:

  • Stuart Meyer - Partner, Fenwick & West LLP

This event will take place from 8:30 - 10:30 am at Fenwick & West, 801 California Street, Mountain View, CA 94041.  For more information:
