The Wake Forest Journal of Business and Intellectual Property Law, will host its first law and business-oriented symposium “Creative Capital: Intellectual Property Creation and Venture Capital” on Friday, March 25, from 10 am to 3:30 pm at Worrell 1312.
In the business of innovation, issues of intellectual property protection and access to venture capital financing are inextricably intertwined. When entrepreneurs turn to venture capital as a source of funding, venture capitalists rely on intellectual property to protect investments in new technology. The symposium will address the many points of intersection between intellectual property and business law, especially in the context of the IP-based startup company.
The symposium is free and open to the public. Q'Doba burritos will be served at noon.
The keynote speaker from 12:15-1:15 pm will be Bob Young, the CEO and founder of Lulu.com and a co-founder of Red Hat.
This year’s symposium is co-sponsored by the Wake Forest University School of Law and the Schools of Business, BB&T Center for the Study of Capitalism.
