Event description

Description


Compared to big businesses, startups face more acute pressures in terms of money, time and staying on the cutting edge. This means that securing funding and ensuring that you have the right IP protection for your technology at the right time is crucial to support your business plan.

The session is aimed specifically at startups and entrepreneurs. It will cover different ways of securing funding as well as trade marks, patents, designs, copyright and confidential information.


Speakers/Topics

Rachel Bradley and Kathy Hills of Penningtons Manches will discuss commercial agreements (including non-disclosure agreements) and tax efficient ways to incentivise employees and investors respectively.

Andy Bentham (patents) and James Fish (trade marks) from Patent and Trade Mark Attorney firm J A Kemp's Cambridge office will discuss how to identify and mitigate IP risks when searching for funding.

Katy Levitt, an Investment Associate with Cambridge-based crowdfunding platform SyndicateRoom will explain how crowdfunding works and can benefit IP-oriented businesses.
