Innovation is not exclusively for entrepreneurs! Explore intrapreneurship through the development of unique intellectual property and the creation of patents. Both current and aspiring entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs will learn how to further disrupt themselves by learning the necessary considerations to create and license their own patents.

Join Bill Coughlin, Assistant General Counsel, Intellectual Property, Ford Motor Company, and Joe Benz, Chief Operating Officer, Intellectual Property, Ford Motor Company, to explore levels of intrapreneurship and learn more about securing a patent within your company!

JUST ADDED: Rocket Fiber co-founder, Edi Demaj, and dPOP founder, Melissa Price, will engage in a panel discussion led by Jacquelyn Pogue, sharing how their own intrapreneurial dreams eventually birthed their wildly successful entrepreneurial journies!
