If you’re in or around San Diego this week be sure to check out the Cleantech Open Business Briefing this Thursday, April 10th.
The Cleantech Open is a non-profit organization that runs the world’s largest cleantech accelerator. The Business Accelerator fosters promising startups in cleantech fields through a six-month program that includes cutting-edge entrepreneur training and mentoring (including in IP!), client and partner opportunities, and funding connections.
The business briefings bring together Cleantech Open members and staff and early-stage cleantech start-ups and entrepreneurs. Attendees will get an overview of the Cleantech Open and the Business Accelerator.
I will be speaking on some broad themes about the role of patents in the cleantech industry. Entitled “Green Patents and Green Branding: Global Perspectives and News You Can Use,” my talk will cover a range of big picture stuff and practical info on green patenting and protecting eco-marks.
