Partners Roger Kuan and Jason Novak spoke at the Good Food Institute's monthly virtual meeting called GFIdeas to give everyone a crash course on intellectual property portfolio management—vital knowledge for any new startup.
Their presentation started with a high-level IP 101 overview and then dug deeper into the nuances of the plant-based and clean meat industries. Key takeaways included:
- A company’s IP mix depends heavily on its business strategy
- Plant-based and clean meat companies will likely seek out patents on specific unique aspects of their process
- We can learn a lot from other industries
