Startup Weekend 2013

Entrepreneurship Forum Logo

The Entrepreneurship Forum is a series of talks, held once each semester, on subjects related to the practice of entrepreneurship. The forums are held jointly by the CSU Monterey Bay College of Business, the Institute for Innovation and Economic Development, and the CSU Monterey Bay Small Business Development Center. They are open to students, faculty, and members of the community at no charge.

The forums provide an opportunity for students and aspiring entrepreneurs to hear from professional and experience people from the field, and learn from their stories. In addition to a short talk by each panel member, there is ample opportunity for audience members to ask questions of the panel.

Protecting Your Intellectual Property

2014 Fall Entrepreneurship Forum
Tuesday, October 14, 2014 2:00-4:30 pm at the University Center Ballroom

For most startup companies, their intellectual property ("IP"), including their brand, logo, taglines, documents, and innovations, are their most important assets, and need to be protected from competitive infringement. This session will feature an industry presentation on managing a portfolio of intellectual property, and a panel of legal experts on how you should protect your IP. There will be ample time for the audience to interact with the speakers.
