At our first ever fully virtual Early Stage event on July 21, Perkins Coie partners, Matt Oshinsky and Michael Glenn, were joined by Baris Aksoy of AV8 Ventures to discuss creating and protecting intellectual property value. They covered many important topics including:
- How do venture capital investors value formal Intellectual Property rights in connection with a decision to fund a technology or life sciences start-up?
- How do they conduct IP due diligence?
- How do investors and founders, post-funding, ensure their start-ups are pursuing an IP strategy that optimizes exit valuation for all?
