Do you have an innovative idea or an innovation that you want to protect and yet promote? How do you know if someone hasn’t already developed something similar? How can you protect your idea while promoting your innovation, completing customer discovery, and raising capital at the same time? If you would like to learn more about intellectual property as a business tool, please join us for Protect Your Innovation, a Husky Innovate workshop.
We will discuss the fundamentals of intellectual property such as patents, trademarks, licensing, and trade secrets, including how to initiate a prior art discovery with resources available at the J. Robert Van Pelt and John Ruanne Opie Library. The workshop will start with an introduction into the practical considerations and trade-offs involved in protecting your idea and how intellectual property protections can be used as a tool to develop your innovation.
Michigan Technological University’s own IP expert, Licensed Patent Agent and Associate Vice President for Research Administration Jim Baker, and local MTEC’s SmartZone CEO Dan Jamison will guide the conversation with compelling scenarios and be available for questions throughout the event. Annelise Doll will provide an overview of US Patent and Trademark Office resources available at the local Patent and Trademark Resource Center.
