Join the Montana Innovation Partnership for a virtual meetup with Joel Henry of Worden Thane P.C. to discuss intellectual property (IP) concerns for early-stage tech entrepreneurs and SBIR/STTR candidates. We'll have the opportunity to learn and ask questions around IP protection, how to handle it when talking with potential partners or non-employee members of your SBIR team, in your proposals, and the differences between patents and data rights offered by SBIR/STTR.

We'll discuss:
What is IP?
How do you talk or write about your IP without disclosing and/or revealing too much?
What are patents? Should I patent?
What are SBIR data rights? What do they offer the awardee?
What is the difference between patents and data rights?
What about invention disclosures during the period of an SBIR award?

Who should attend: Early-stage investigators considering SBIR/STTR funding and SBIR/STTR Phase I/II awardees
