Patent Strategies for Startups: Maximizing the Patent Process at the Earliest Stages on a Limited Budget

This presentation is designed for CEOs of established companies and Start Up Entrepreneurs.
  1. Initial patent application filing sets the critical priority date/getting that wrong will reduce patent effectiveness & can dramatically increase costs
  2. By educating your patent attorney effectively at the beginning, you can empower your patent attorney to develop a better strategy with lower costs 
  3. You need to start the patent process before involving investors but, the bulk of the cost associated with the patent process can be backloaded over the course of several years


Presenter: Jeff Schell, Founder, Rocky Mountain Patent

Jeff founded Rocky Mountain Patent and the Quandary Group with a talented team of scientists, engineers and attorneys on a mission to transform innovative concepts into companies. He then leveraged the valuable IP the group developed to raise several million dollars to acquire TranS1, an innovative medical device company, and relocated the company to Colorado. Soon thereafter, ColoradoBiz Magazine named TranS1 one of the top 250 companies in Colorado by revenue. The Denver Post also named TranS1 Denver's "Most Innovative Workplace" in 2016. Further, the Colorado Technology Association named TranS1 a nominee for "Company of the Year." Under Jeff's leadership, Orthopedics This Week awarded TranS1 with the 2017 Spine Technology Award.

In driving TranS1 as its CEO, Jeff has chased the vision that effective spine surgery need not lead to the consequence of debilitating trauma. The surgeon-led R&D team associated with TranS1 continues to aggressively innovate and support surgeon concepts, filing over 50 patent applications related to spine surgical techniques and devices under Jeff's direction. TranS1's AxiaLIF procedure remains a critically important technology for many surgeons to help patients with debilitating problems at the L5-S1 junction.
