IPforward provides a unique forum to learn from and network with intellectual property (IP) leaders from IDT, Quixey, SolarCity, Verily (formerly Google Life Sciences), Workday, Zynga, and other fast-growing Silicon Valley companies about how they build high value IP portfolios by striving for excellence at the challenging intersection of IP strategy, tactics and operations.
If you are in-house counsel, or work in IP management or operations in-house, do not miss this unique opportunity to network with your peers, share best practices, and benchmark your own operations against them!
Voices from last year’s conference:
“The conference was hitting on many topics that are real issues for me now.”
“Better than any of the recent ‘big’ IP conferences I have attended.”
“A home run, with everyone engaged and great information passed along.”
“It was invaluable!”
