Market & Competitive Research MUSTS for Inventors+ the Rest of Us

May 21, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

What you don’t know about your market and your competition can stop you dead in your tracks. It can cost you plenty if you’re an inventor-type and don’t know that you don’t have “Freedom to Operate”. Our speaker is an inventor plus he works with intellectual property attorneys to make sure their clients are clear to go forward with their idea and won’t be in violation of someone else’s patent or other IP. And, when it comes to marketing, research can also help you win legal battles. Learn what are your specific MUSTS when it comes to research and how to get started and keep the information you need flowing
We will start right at noon and end at 1PM so please be on time. Come early if you want to eat and sit with our speaker. Bring cards to share and be prepared to share a recent success! The meeting is free but please be prepared to spend at least $10 to defray the cost of the room.
This is a program of the Austin Small Biz Success Meetup and the Business Success Center but everyone is welcome.
Host: Jan Triplett, Ph.D., CEO, Business Success Center and author/speaker on the 100+ Ways to Fund a Business.
