A common question I hear concerns patents and other intellectual property such as trademarks. Entrepreneurs are often not sure if they should go through the process of obtaining a patent, copyright or trademark. There are many things to consider in making these decisions. One area that is often overlooked is the effect intellectual property has on raising capital. Thursday the 28th of March, the Plains Angels will be holding their monthly due diligence training session focused on intellectual property and raising capital.
How does intellectual property affect raising capital and valuation for startup companies? Does the startup need to have a patent, a trademark? What should angel investors know when it comes to patents both here and in other countries. The session will be on “Intellectual Property,” with speakers from the BrownWinick Law Firm.
These sessions are not restricted to Plains Angels members or accredited investors. All business interested people are encouraged to attend as well as entrepreneurs, so they might better understand and prepare for raising funds. Register today at tikly.co/PlainsAngels/
