Making Smart Patent Filing Decisions 


Filing for patents and other intellectual property protection to safeguard your company’s technologies requires a series of strategic decisions. These decisions are often left up to the lawyers, but when business leaders, engineers, and scientific professionals understand the process, pros and cons, and potential costs, it creates a much more collaborative and goal-oriented approach.

Wednesday, April 25 — 11:30 am – 1 p.m. 
at UEL — 1000 Westgate Drive St Paul 55114
