E-Team Stage 1 Workshop



Date: April 27, 2019

Location: MIT

Mintz Members Pete Corless and Ed Pease will be speaking at the E-Team Stage 1 workshop to discuss IP and incorporation basics for startups.  

The session will help innovators:

  • Understand the implications of public disclosure and how the law has changed from first-to-invent to first-to-file; how this impacts the customer discovery process
  • Have a working vocabulary regarding provisional patents and patent filing strategy and timeline
  • Have an understanding of inventorship and ownership
  • Recognize that patent strategy is not separate from the rest of the business strategy and much of the same language and concepts should be used in both areas.
  • Know the decisions to make in terms of naming, incorporating, and sharing equity among founders in the company.
