Webinar: From Idea to Invention to Intellectual Property

June 11, 2020

11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Join the Scott Institute for a webinar entitled, "From Idea to Invention to Intellectual Property: What Startups and Innovators Need to Know."

Understanding the Intellectual Property (IP) and Patent processes when building a startup can be uniquely challenging for inventors. As a Power Connector with the Department of Energy’s American-Made Solar Prize, the Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation at Carnegie Mellon University is highlighting this important topic for startups, student teams, and researchers. Hear from legal experts with national law firm Babst Calland (a newly-named Connector, see details below) as they share best practices from filing and managing costs to protecting IP.

Join the Scott Institute’s Jay Whitacre (a seasoned entrepreneur) and Anna J. Siefken with experts from Babst Calland for an informative discussion:

  • Justine Kasznica, shareholder; chair, Emerging Technologies - Babst Calland
  • Carl Ronald, shareholder, Emerging Technologies and Corporate and Commercial Groups - Babst Calland

Q&A will be available during the session.

A Zoom link and password to join will be provided upon registration.
