Charlie O’Brien, chair of Cantor Colburn’s intellectual property (IP) Transactional Group, will be the guest speaker at the next Inventors Association of Connecticut (IACT) event, a his free talk, “How to Value Your Innovation” at Fairfield University at 7 p.m. in the DiMenna-Nyselius Library Multimedia Room.

Whether licensing your innovation, selling a patent, or raising money to bring a product to market, O’Brien will give tips on how to become a strong negotiator. He’ll teach you how to determine the actual dollar value of what you bring to the deal, and to document its worth in a convincing manner.
