Attendees: Approximately 40 attendees, including CEOs and CTOs from the startup companies that have presented to Keiretsu Forum or are considering presenting to the Keiretsu Forum.


Goals: Inventors and entrepreneurs have four concerns related to patent law: protecting their inventions in the very early stages of product development, determining the patentability of their invention, avoiding infringement of a competitor's patent, and leveraging their patent as a business asset. This lecture series will address each of these concerns.


Instructor: Jeffrey Schox is a Registered Patent Attorney and the founding member of Schox Patent Group (, a boutique patent law firm devoted to startup ventures. Drawing on his experience of over ten years in the patent law field and the filing of over 200 patent applications, Jeffrey strategically advises startup companies. As a Consulting Professor for Stanford University, Jeffrey teaches the course “Patent Law and Strategy” to engineering and business school students and the course “Patent Prosecution” to law students.
