Program: A patent portfolio is the intersection of technology, law, and business. A smaller company, especially, needs a deft practitioner to set up processes and execute strategies to maximize the conversion of an IP budget into IP value, and the practitioner must do so in the context of the business of the particular company. This interactive discussion will focus on best practices for patent portfolio development in small and fast-growing high-tech companies.
Presenter: Jonah Probell manages the IP portfolio for SoundHound, a company that turns sound into understanding and actionable meaning. He is a patent agent and veteran of six startups over the past 19 years. Jonah just completed the third edition of his book, Patenting for the Small Company.
