Business Startup 101 will be more than the basics

 

[PANAMA CITY, FL, March 7, 2014] - The Business Innovation Center on Florida State University's Panama City Campus is hosting a three hour event open to all regional entrepreneurs on Tuesday, April 8, titled "Business Startup 101." The event begins at 3:00 p.m. and will be held in the Summit Conference Room at the Advanced Technology Center at Gulf Coast State College.

 

Topics will include facets of Intellectual Property such as patents, trademark and copyright issues, protecting trade secrets and offer a question and answer session. Speakers include Travis Perry founding entrepreneur of ChordBuddy and a contestant on ABC’s Shark Tank, local attorney, Andrew Levy, partner at Harrison Sale McCloy, and Orlando based, Terry Sanks, partner at Beusse Wolter Sanks Mora & Maire.

 

“Having an idea and turning it into a business is exciting,” said Pamela Kidwell, Executive Director of the Business Innovation Center. “Business Startup 101 will give entrepreneurs insight to the tools and intellectual property protection needed for innovative success.”

 

Levy, who specializes in corporate and commercial law, will talk about business basics. Levy brings significant practical commercial experience and serves as legal counsel for a number of businesses operating within the Florida Panhandle and nationwide.

 

“Innovators with new ideas are bringing business to Northwest Florida, and we feel the region offers the appropriate business climate for not only the commercialization of new intellectual property but also the expansion of existing businesses,” according to Levy, “With our diverse base of intellectual capital rooted in our educational, military and commercial institutions, it is a prime time and ideal marketplace to host this event.”

 

Sanks will add a general overview of the world of patent law. He is experienced in the preparation and prosecution of patent applications for a variety of inventions primarily dealing with electrical, electromechanical and mechanical technologies, software-based, business methods and e-commerce.

 

Travis has one of the most successful products ever featured on the popular television series, Shark Tank. When Travis entered the Shark Tank, he was ready to negotiate. He will share his tips and tricks in preparing for the big pitch and the importance of protecting your idea. The “How To” in the Shark Tank will be revealed.

 

Event planners point out this event is for the entrepreneur with a new idea, as well as, seasoned CEO’s and COO’s who have had great ideas and brought them to fruition. Business Startup 101 is the place to search out the next steps in developing a plan and perhaps reviewing an investment.
