Workshops hosted by partners Eileen McMahon and Cheryl Reicin covered the following topics:

  3. Examples of ideas successfully commercialized (physicians, researchers, hospitals, etc).

Key takeaways included:

  • How does an “idea” differ from an “invention”.
  • What is patentable?
  • Why are patents valuable?
  • What are the different options for commercializing an invention?
  • What legal steps do I need to take with my co-inventors (incorporation? shareholders agreement? assignments? confidentiality agreements?)
