Emerging Business Seminar Series (Phoenix)


How to License Technology

December 6th, 2017 from 7:30-9:30am
1365 North Scottsdale Road, Suite 135, Scottsdale, AZ 85257

You may be a business owner with a revolutionary, patented invention, but no capital (or desire) to build the expensive manufacturing and distribution infrastructure necessary to commercialize your product.

Or you may run a company with a first-in-class manufacturing facility and a global distribution network, but no in-house innovation capabilities.   

For these types of businesses, licensing can provide an efficient and cost-effective way to take products to market and mitigate risk along the way.

Snell & Wilmer invites you to the next program in the Emerging Business Seminar Series, where partner Brian J. Burt will discuss how to license technology and intellectual property.
