Prototypes, Patents, & IP Protection for Hardware Startups
December 12 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This session is about making prototype hardware devices from early concepts to those used for manufacturing scale-up. The session includes examples from area startups and engineering resources that design hardware products to be manufactured in high volume.
Information to help inventors maintain control over their intellectual property when working with other engineering firms and manufacturers will also be presented along with discussion of using prototypes to assist with patent development and submission.
Each of the presenters will be available following the sessions for free 1:1 consultations with attendees to discuss their individual projects and questions.
