International Startup and Emerging Companies Forum: Pushing the Boundaries

The International Startup and Emerging Companies Forum: Pushing the Boundaries conference will cover what every legal practitioner needs to know about the legal issues faced by international startups and emerging growth companies. Experts from around the world will provide cutting-edge strategies to navigate the minefields that threaten the existence of these companies, including strategies for regulatory compliance and disruptive innovation, CFIUS, setting up the corporate framework, IP strategies to get optimal results from federal funding agreements, and talent management, as well as insights into markets investing heavily in this space and the opportunities that affords. GT Shareholder Paul McQuade (DC) will moderate the panel "Uncle Sam Wants Your Innovations, Not Your IP: Strategies for Protecting a Startup's IP Under Federal Funding Agreements," discussing practical approaches and strategies for startups to achieve optimal outcomes, namely to obtain federal funding for their development of cutting-edge technologies without having to give up equity (to investors) and without having to sacrifice the IP rights that enable a company to commercialize, license, or exploit its technologies.
