We get it. Being an entrepreneur, founder, and/or a working professional is hard. You have to wear multiple hats. You have to learn new skills and information. You have to be resourceful. How do you do that with such little time?
That is where our Brown Bag Lunch Series comes in. We understand how insane life can get as an entrepreneur and we want to help lighten the load! Think of this series as a “101” class. Do you need to hire a front-end developer and don’t know where to start? How do you know when you should get a patent? How do you buy a home as an entrepreneur or contractor? How do you finish paying off your student loans? (Just writing this out, overwhelms us).
These classes are very basic level. We know you are already overwhelmed, we don’t want to overwhelm you even more. We want to give you the exact information you need to create more balance in your life.
Bring your own lunch and join us on Friday, June 15th as Valerie Davis, CEO and Managing Member of The Mason Group, discusses the patent process for inventors, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and startups. Don’t have time to pack a lunch? Don’t worry! We have a cafeteria 2 floors down from our office. Arrive 5 minutes early, grab a warm meal from our cafe and join us on the third floor. Drinks will be provided!
Overview of discussion:
Valerie’s presentation will explain the differences between patents and other types of intellectual property, what types of subject matter may qualify for a patent, the process of obtaining a patent and the cost, and some tips to help you determine whether you may have an “idea” worth patenting. You will leave this conversation armed with a better understanding of patents and whether getting a patent could be beneficial for you or your business.
