STARTING A START-UP

THE FIRST STEP: Evaluating the Opportunity

At our initial meeting, we’ll get a sense of your innovation’s ultimate commercial potential and we’ll “vet” the idea with advisors. We’ll ask questions such as:

  • What’s the technology, and its stage of development?
  • What are the applicable market(s)?
  • What’s the best path to market?
  • What’s the IP position?
  • What’s the competitive landscape?
