Constructing a Coherent Patent Strategy for The New World of Connected Cars

The rapidly accelerating integration of computer, communications, entertainment and automotive technologies brings with it with it a merging of different corporate cultures and industry attitudes regarding the use (or non-use) of patents as strategic business assets.

Surrounded by the many rare classic cars on display at a restored 1930’s Packard dealership in Burlingame known as "The Candy Store,” the new generation of connected cars will be discussed by established firms in the automotive sector and disruptive new entrants.
Join us for this unique afternoon event. Doors open at 1:30 p.m., program begins at 2:00 p.m.

Technology Overview:  What’s Here and What’s coming? 
Hakan Kostepen, Executive Director of Product Strategy & Innovation in Panasonic Automotive Systems America’s Silicon Valley Center in Cupertino, who is himself a prolific source of patented inventions, will be interviewed by Jayson Pankin, Founder, President & CEO of the AutoHarvest Foundation in Detroit.
