January Meeting

Our next meeting, generously sponsored by the great people at Thomas Horstemeyer, will be held at GA Tech at 5:00 p.m. on Wed., January 31, 2018.  Joe Staley and Arvind Reddy lead this month's program, called "Shark Tank: Considerations for Innovators Commercializing Products."  Join two teams of innovators, one representing UGA and another representing Georgia Tech, as they take their ideas to Shark Tank.  Let’s learn about some considerations that innovators should keep in mind when commercializing an idea.  See how good legal advice can help you survive the Sharks and how bad advice gets you eaten alive!  Please join us on Wednesday, January 31 at Georgia Tech.  We promise we won’t make any UGA jokes about the National Championship Game (just kidding, we definitely will).

5:00pm – 6:00pm (optional)  Panel Presentation for GA Tech students by Inn members on careers in IP.

5:30pm – 7:00pm  Reception  (students will join at 6:00pm)  N.B.:  As this is being held on a college campus, anyone wishing to consume alcohol will need to provide valid ID.
