Join McCarthy Tétrault at Vancouver Startup Week for a panel discussion on the importance of intellectual property protection and how it impacts your business.  McCarthy Tétrault IP lawyers Vincent Yip and Amy Fong alongside Bart Copeland, CEO & President at ActiveState and Tim Botham and Andy Talbot, Managing Partners at Aqua M&A will discuss why an IP strategy is key to the success of innovative companies. They will also share their insights as how to lay the groundwork for building a valuable IP portfolio and cover other practical IP issues you need to consider to protect your business, including employee or consultant-created innovations, licensing and freedom-to-operate. We hope you can join us for what will be a practical and dynamic discussion among business leaders and entrepreneurs who have worked extensively with companies that have unique and diverse IP needs.  The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.

Breakfast will be served from 8:30 – 9:00am and the presentation will start at 9:00am.
