Are you a tech entrepreneur worried about the complex legal environment of intellectual property? You’re not alone.
From Takoma Park to the Tidal Basin, DMV residents are surrounded by technology startups. A recent study found DC to be a top five city for tech innovation and CNBC also ranked our area highly for startup success. However, with such industry growth comes challenges, particularly regarding intellectual property.
It is difficult to be a market pioneer when followers and copycats are nipping at your heels. With many questions and challenges facing innovators in a regional tech hub, the DC/Baltimore Chapter of the MIT Enterprise Forum is holding an event on October 10th with this in mind.
Members at the MITEF know firsthand that one great idea can change the world. With a network of over 28 worldwide chapters, we know the power of entrepreneurial innovation and creativity. Something that is often forgotten on the part of the innovator involves using methods to protect what has been created.
A technological trailblazer might not be as well versed in the legal trade-offs of seeking intellectual property protection. What can you do to maximize the value of your creation in the software area?
Next week, you will have the opportunity to gain powerful insights from practicing attorneys, industry thought leaders, and other entrepreneurs on the power of intellectual property. With this MITEF Roundtable Discussion, you will be able to question and converse with those “in the know” to better protect what you have developed to change the world.
