SBIR assistance providers often uncover serious missteps in intellectual property (IP) management and contracting, both in Phase I and Phase II contracts. The worst of those missteps can result in a company’s loss of control of key aspects of their IP, effectively hampering or disabling product development and possibly risking the transition to Phase II.

Successful management of an SBIR includes up-front identification of potential intellectual property and contractual encumbrances, as well as potential conflicts of interest that can leave your project – and company – dead in the water. Learn how to identify potential encumbrances and conflicts of interest, and how to take steps to mitigate problems before they start.
