Joint Development Agreements (JDAs) set the terms/conditions for parties to work together/collaborate to develop a particular product or technology. This program will provide early-stage companies with an overview of JDAs, when or why a JDA may be needed for a startup, how they are negotiated/entered into, how to protect IP, how costs are shared, and what are some pros/cons with JDAs. Panelists Dan Cosgrove (Growers Edge), Jason Stone (Dentons Law Firm), and Steve Smith (Bioconnect Iowa) will also provide personnel perspectives based on previous real-world experiences.
This will be a one-hour formal program, followed by audience Q&A and 1:1 meetings with panelists. Members of Iowa’s startup ecosystem are welcome and encouraged to join!
