IP Strategy for Startups

Hosted By: CANOPY

Innovators typically want to turn their ideas into profitable business ventures. Unfortunately, patents often fail to protect the value of a business because they focus on a specific technology rather than the overall business opportunity.

Shmuel Silverman, CEO and founder of Multi-Innovation, and David Hayes, Partner at Fenwick and West LLP will co-host a conversation on May 22, perfect for VCs and early-stage startup founders to attend. Shmuel will provide insight using his experience as an inventor, strategist and mentor to showcase the exponential value a business can gain when their IP portfolio is driven from their overall business strategy rather than specific ideas or inventions. David will discuss how to use all forms of intellectual property and other legal rights in an integrated strategy that protects the company's current and future business models and offer critical pragmatic tips for early-stage startups referencing his experience in intellectual property counseling, technology licensing, litigation, and as a registered patent attorney with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.​​​​​​​​​
