"Entrepreneurship and Intellectual Property 101"

George Abe, UCLA Anderson lecturer and faculty director, will be presenting on important issues on entrepreneurship and pitfalls of developing and protecting Intellectual Property.

Abe is a lecturer at the UCLA Anderson School of Management and faculty director of the Strategic Management Research (SMR) program. He teaches entrepreneurship, business plan development and field study program advisories.

As a graduate student at UCLA, Abe studied on pre-Internet data networking. He's been ahead of the curve ever since, in his career and now in his teaching. He's worked for Computer Sciences Corp, designed the IP data service for CSC’s spinoff, Infonet Services Corporation, and later signed on as business development manager at Cisco, where he became the company’s first product manager for data over cable products.

Abe circled back to his alma mater when he joined UCLA’s technology transfer office, where commercialization of intellectual property is managed. In 2003 Senior Associate Dean Al Osborne invited Abe to teach entrepreneurship. In his teaching, he emphasizes deal terms and team building. “Team building is the key,” he says. “Students underestimate it. They come in believing fundraising is the hardest part. The socialization process is important and overlooked.”

Join us for a lunch meeting with our Lawyer's Affinity Group for a great topic and as always, great networking! Enjoy great views of Los Angeles at the West Restaurant in the Hotel Angeleno, and even better company!

Lunch will be provided with the cost of attendance.

Cost: $20
