MATTER Workshop: Intro to Confidentiality Agreements

While startups and emerging companies often utilize outside consultation and support to fuel their growth, they must be careful to protect their ideas when doing so. To that end, signing Confidential Disclosure Agreements (CDAs), can help startups ensure their confidential information will only be shared with potential investors, collaborators, and entities for merger or acquisition. CDAs are critical to keeping startups’ cutting edge ideas, in-process projects, novel products, data, and other business information secret from the public at large. In this workshop, MBHB patent attorney Kirsten Thomson will advise on key provisions for inclusion in CDAs and address common pitfalls to avoid.
