The Blackstone LaunchPad is pleased to announce a new collaboration with the NYS Science & Technology Law Center (“NYS STLC”), an Empire State Development/NYSTAR sponsored resource available to New York State entities working on commercializing new technologies.
Do you have questions about patents and how to tell if a technology is likely to meet new, non-obvious and patentable subject matter patent requirements? Students from the NYS STLC program will be at the Blackstone LaunchPad at Bird Library the following times to discuss patent searching strategies and assist with conducting a patent search. Patent searches are also helpful for determining competitors in a technical area. Assistance will be provided on a first come first serve basis or you can sign up for a ½ hour slot in advance by e-mailing LaunchPad@syr.edu
“LaunchPad tech commercialization office hours” will be:
- Wednesday, February 28th 10 – 12
- Tuesday, March 6th 3 – 5
- Thursday, March 22nd 2:30 – 4:30
- Monday, March 26th 10:30 – 12:30
- Wednesday April 4th, 10 – 12
- Tuesday, April 10thth 3 – 5
- Thursday, April 19th 2:30 – 4:30
- Monday, April 23rd 10:30 – 12:30
Office hours will rotate with Jennifer Hicks, Lindsey Round, Xiang Tony Qi and Tom Carlon. This service is free and open to SU students. It is not a substitute for IP patent counsel.
When it comes to new technologies, knowing what you don’t know is half the battle. The NYS STLC helps entrepreneurs and companies with new technologies identify potential challenges and devise effective strategies to successfully bring that technology to market.
From market landscapes to intellectual property protection to licensing options to potential funding sources, NYS STLC has helped scores of companies and institutions make their technology vision become a commercial reality. If you are a company or institution focused on bringing new technology to market, the NYS STLC is here to assist and guide you. The NYS STLC does not file for or prosecute patents. The program does not provide legal advice or opinions and does not otherwise compete with IP law firms. The NYS STLC operates through the Technology Commercialization Law Program at the Syracuse University College of Law.
