    Once your IP is developed, there are several important decisions you’ll need to make about protecting your new asset well before commercialization, investment, or exit. Learn about successful IP commercialization strategies at The Venture Forum’s January 13 meeting. Hear valuable insights into significant real-world IP examples from a genetics analytics entrepreneur, a patent attorney, and an IP valuation expert.

    The Venture Forum is pleased to kick off the New Year 2015 with three notable IP speakers: Kryngle Daly of KBioBox, Brian Dingman of Dingman, McInnes & McLane, and Andrew Bostian of BlumShapiro. A Q&A will follow each presentation.

    Join us January 13 in WPI’s Rubin Campus Center at 5:30pm with networking and food. The program starts at 6:30pm. Read more about this month’s speaker line up:
