As part of its ongoing effort to support entrepreneurship among its faculty and students, the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering is hosting an Intellectual Property Training Series for the second year in a row. This latest IP Training Series will begin on March 21.
The three-part training series is designed for Engineering faculty, post docs, and students. This latest IP Training Series is titled: "IP strategies and business strategies: what comes first?" Workshop attendees will learn about the interaction and influence of IP and business strategies upon one another from actual, and some very high profile, case studies. The College of Engineering Entrepreneurism initiative is in its second year. Previous attendance at earlier workshops is not required.
Aaron Levine and Matt Todd, partners and co-chairs of the New Ventures & Corporate Transactions Group in locally-based law firm Novak Druce Connolly Bove + Quigg LLC, will present each workshop. Novak et al is a national IP practice with offices in Houston, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, Boston, West Palm Beach and Wilmington. Their clients span a diverse group of industries and technologies from electronic commerce and telecommunications to biotech and pharmaceuticals.
The first session will be presented on March 21, with subsequent sessions set for March 28 and April 4. Attendees are required to RSVP at the following link: http://www.egr.uh.edu/advancement/external_relations/ip-2014-registration.
