I am excited to announce that I will be speaking at Detroit Startup Week, "a new type of conference that builds momentum and opportunity around entrepreneurship, led by entrepreneurs and hosted in the entrepreneurial spaces you love." The roster of speakers is amazing, and registration is free.
My talk, titled "Getting the Competitive Edge . . . and Keeping It," is Wednesday, May 24, at 10:00 a.m. Here's the description:
Recent high-profile legal cases—involving Fitbit, Jimmie John's, and Ivanka Trump, to name just a few—highlight the growing importance of competition law in today's economy. Using real-world examples, this interactive presentation will provide a crash-course in five critical (and sometimes controversial) legal issues facing startups: trade secrets, non-competes, trademarks, false advertising, and business defamation. Entrepreneurs will learn practical legal strategies for getting, and keeping, their competitive edge in a crowded marketplace.
I hope to see you at Detroit Startup Week! Register for free here.
