ENGM 188: Law, Technology and Entrepreneurship
Cannot be used to satisfy any A.B. degree requirements
Taking a good idea and turning it into a successful product and a profitable business poses a number of technical, managerial, and financial challenges. The solutions to many of the challenges of entrepreneurship in general, and to those of starting up a technologically based business in particular, are provided by the law. A grounding in the law of intellectual property, contractual transactions, business structures, debt and equity finance, and securities regulation, both in the U.S. and in an international context, will help inventors and entrepreneurs to manage this part of the process intelligently and with a high likelihood of success.
