In recent years, there has been a surge in the number of technology start-ups being formed in the UK. Businesses understand that in order to create future economic growth, prosperity and wellbeing they must put themselves on the technology platform and make technology an integral part of their modern business. However, making the leap into technology or looking to expand and develop in this relevantly new sector can be challenging.
It is therefore important for businesses to know how to protect themselves in the tech world. Whether you are a start-up company in the process of developing and refining your products or service, recruiting your first members of staff and potentially considering raising investment for tech growth or a spin out seeking to move assets and create a separate legal entity, we can guide you through the stages of the company’s growth and life cycle.
Here at Jacksons we understand that each business operates in a different way however, nearly all businesses will either work with, be created or are empowered by technology and therefore early engagement and support is key to a business’s success. This is why we have launched a series of workshops: JLF Tees Tech Talks. The workshops will be held at Boho 5 on Bridge Street East in Middlesbrough, running over three months, the first of which is being held on Thursday 9 May, with Dominic Lusardi, Managing Director of Animmersion providing his expert view.
Within our first two workshops we will explore the topics and issues which a business may face in the tech sector, including:
- Protecting intellectual property and understanding its commercial exploitation
- Keeping confidential information secure
- Drafting and negotiting licencing and collaboration agreements
- Cyber and digital security
- Joint ventures in the UK
- Growth funding, mergers & acquisitions and disposals
Allowing us to be involved and acquiring our services early on will provide stability and certainty in allowing you to manage your technology from an initial concept through to an established and successful business.
