Last night I had the pleasure of presenting a “Crash Course” on Intellectual Property for Entrepreneurs at the University of Colorado here in Boulder. The presentation was well attended (especially given that it was the night of our first real snow storm for the season here in Boulder) and the Q&A following the presentation really brought out some interesting concerns – not just about the interplay between IP and technology but involving content and new media IP issues as well. Special thanks to Brad Bernthal from the Silicon Flatirons Center for Law, Technology and Entrepreneurship at CU for inviting me to give the presentation and organizing the event.
The presentation was part of a larger series of “Crash Course” events geared toward entrepreneurs sponsored by Silicon Flatirons. You can access a list of current and future “Crash Courses” on the Silicon Flatirons web site. Past topics have included angel and VC fund raising, marketing for early stage tech companies, and growing a business in the current uncertain economy. I understand the folks at Silicon Flatirons are lining up more interesting topics in the near future.
