Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 07, 2014
Traklight LLC, a Phoenix-based provider of online software and tools to easily identify and secure intellectual property (IP), is proud to sponsor LAUNCH Festival 2014, an annual event in which 40 new companies launch on stage in front of more than 8,000 people. Additionally, Traklight Founder and CEO Mary Juetten will host a workshop on safe crowdfunding.
“Most startups don’t even know what intellectual property actually is, let alone how to protect it. And yet, safeguarding IP is one of the most critical aspects of ensuring business success,” Juetten said. “Nowadays, crowdfunding is one of the biggest ways for new businesses to raise funds to get their ventures off the ground. My workshop will educate startups on the topic of crowdfunding and provide strategies to ensure they’re doing it smartly and safely.”
Hosted by Launch, an organization dedicated to connecting entrepreneurs and investors, LAUNCH Festival will take place February 24–26, 2014, at San Francisco’s Design Center Concourse. In addition to workshops and 40 live, onstage business launches, the event will feature an array of esteemed speakers, including keynoters Mark Cuban and Paul Graham, as well as an exhibit hall, demo area and award competition.
“The LAUNCH Festival is now the largest platform for launching startups, with 8,000 participants and 300 startups represented,” said LAUNCH Founder Jason Calacanis. “We're thankful for Traklight's support and participation.”
While the event is tailored to startups, small business, investors and professionals in those fields, it’s open to any and all tech enthusiasts. Those interested in attending can purchase tickets by visiting the following link: http://events.launch.co/festival/#tickets.
