March 2010 Monthly Meeting – Funding For Start-Ups

Funding For Start-Ups

Date: March 9, 2010

Description: Few issues are more critical to the success of entrepreneurial ventures than securing funding. When friends and family money has been depleted, few entrepreneurs know where to turn to get additional funds to help secure assets, such as intellectual property, and to help their businesses grow. Intellectual property attorneys are often the first legal professionals that entrepreneurs will work with, which gives these attorneys the opportunity to help their clients by connecting them with resources that give early-stage companies what they need to be successful. Represented on our panel are leaders of Cincinnati’s Angel and early-stage business community that will discuss identifying funding partners, the funding process, and other resources available to small businesses here in Cincinnati.

Panel Discussion including:

Carol Frankenstein, President of BIOSTART
Jeff June, Director of Capital Formation at CincyTech
Jim Cunningham, Executive Director of C-Cap, Cincinnati’s Angel Capital Hub
Don McKee, Member of QCA
Casey Barach, Northern Kentucky E-Zone
Vance VanDrake (moderator), Senior Associate at Frost Brown Todd

February 2010 Monthly Meeting – Going Global: Real World Trademark Triage and Portfolio Management Strategies

Meeting canceled due to snow!

Going Global: Real World Trademark Triage and Portfolio Management Strategies

Presenter: Lou Ebling

Description: A trademark portfolio is a collection of registered marks, pending applications and often unregistered marks owned by a business venture. Apart from the traditional route, these rights arise through licenses or franchise agreements, co-branding agreements or other transactions. “Portfolio management” involves developing strategies for acquiring, exploiting, maintaining and enforcing these rights in a way that maximizes their value. Companies conducting business outside the U.S. face growing challenges in determining how best to obtain the widest trademark protection possible, exploit the properties and provide meaningful enforcement in an era of shrinking budgets and staff.

Our speaker, Lou Ebling, is Chair of Greenebaum Doll & McDonald’s Intellectual Property Practice Group and a graduate of Albion College and the University of Michigan Law School. Lou concentrates his legal practice on all aspects of US and international trademark law and also advises on internet, advertising, data privacy, patent and copyright issues.
