From $0 to $100 Million, What Can Make a Patent a Hidden Gem
In today’s tech environment, everything can be reverse engineered. The pace of innovation far outstrips the time it takes to protect innovation with patents. A common question by today’s entrepreneurs and tech investors is, are the potential competitive advantages and financial gains of patents worth the cost and risk? Or rather, is it better to invest the time and money into more unprotected product innovation and hope for the best?
Join us for a special Wharton entrepreneurship series discussion presented by Zafar Khan, CEO of RPost; hear how their team has tackled these issues with success and peril; and how they have monetized their patents with millions of dollars of value all-the-while commercializing their technologies into RMail® cybersecurity and RSign® e-sign digital transformation services with worldwide sales and distribution. RPost has successfully defended its patent against the likes of Amazon and PayPal.
Khan (WG’98) is the founder of Wharton club’s C-Circle, and is a former president of Wharton Club of Southern California.
Other: Strict no cell phone usage policy on site. This event is open to Penn and Wharton alums only and sells out quickly, so don't delay in getting your tickets!
