One third of all funded companies have filed a patent application; and 19% of all funded companies filed at least one patent application prior to receiving any funding. VCs look for an "unfair advantage" when investing in startups e.g. stellar team, partnerships, traction, patents, etc., and VCs will not make a significant investment in your startup if someone else can copy your "ideas" and succeed in your market.
Tony Sabeta will discuss the value of patents to startup companies and VCs, IP strategy, and common IP mistakes that startup founders make.
When: January 25, 6pm - 9pm
Where: Extreme Venture Partners, 67 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON
