Join Frank Taney and Tom Costello for an informative discussion on tips & techniques for inventors to transform their ideas from concept into a viable business. Tom will provide an overview of a systemic process to guide inventors and idea creators through a framework in assessing and growing from concept to an operational business. Topics will include concept evolution, business model alternatives, business plan creation, and methods for interacting with funding sources. Frank will identify and review key areas of legal risk typically encountered as inventors navigate their evolution, and suggest methods for mitigating those risks.
ASI Board Member Joe Volpe, recently featured in an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, will also be in attendance to share some of his experiences with taping for The Shark Tank, etc.
