Attracting Strategic Partners to Your Technology: The Most Important Things to Put In Place In Addition to Patents
Richard Citron, Partner, Citron & Deutsch
You have a great idea (or your client has a great idea) and you may have already invested in getting a patent. How do successful entrepreneurs turn an idea into a profitable product and business. Join us for an informative discussion on how to find strategic partners to undertake development and marketing of technology, and the kind of materials that should be created to show new technology to potential partners. The discussion will include a consideration of why strategic partners are important, how to identify key partners, the importance of intellectual property when attracting those partners, and how to create the elements that will attract strategic partners.
