Many entrepreneurs may not realize that even one misstep in establishing their corporate, IP, or regulatory business plan could wreak havoc on their ability to recognize a profit or ultimately become viable. Hear about best practices related to:
- Developing a strategy for dealing with regulated industries, whether you, your customers, or your customers' customers are regulated.
- Integrating IP and regulatory strategies to maximize your competitive advantage.
- Common missteps that cleantech startups make in the formation and funding of the company.
Firm attorneys will share their experiences working in the cleantech industry, discuss the lessons learned guiding clients through many of the typical steps of emerging and early stage companies, from IP and fundraising to revenue earnings, as well as IPOs and mergers and acquisitions, and provide takeaways for future opportunities.
