Event date: February 25

5:30pm - 7:30pm

BaseCamp Coworking Community - 82 E Beaver Creek Blvd, Avon, CO 81620 (above Loaded Joe's and Pazzo's Pizzeria)

Join the Northwest Colorado Small Business Development Center and Intellectual Property Attorney Allison Olenginski to learn the basics of patents, trademarks, and copyrights. What does each protect? Why does it matter? How and when should you protect your intellectual property? And what kinds of IP-related issues might you need to think about as a start up or small business owner? We will discuss recent case examples – including the backcountry.com headline news story and learn how this trademark issue impacted small business owners across Colorado and the nation.

Register early – space for this event is limited in order to allow for discussion and questions. Doors will open at 5:30 and the presentation will begin at 6:00. Please come early to network and to ask questions.
