ASV Licensing Workshop #1: Everything You Need to Know About Licensing

November 8, 2018 Access Events












Dinner and refreshments are provided. Space is extremely limited. RSVP early.



6:00 PM – 6:45PM – networking, food and refreshments

6:45 PM – 8:30 PM – startup workshop and Q & A


This is the first workshop in a series of 3 sessions for startup founders, startup executives, entrepreneurs, innovators and developers.


A comprehensive printed workbook and reference materials is included in the price of the admission.


The right licensing strategy allows a business to generate much-needed revenues and maximize profit while maintaining essential control over their innovations. Before that strategy can be implemented, however, the company needs to have an understanding of what they actually own that’s licensable, and the various forms of intellectual property—including patents, copyrights, and trade secrets—they might choose to license. The complexity increases when you consider the spectrum of rights packages that can be licensed, as well as the range of federal and state laws and regulations governing those agreements.
