Our Presentations

We have two excellent and timely presentations to share with you.

CORPORATE RESILIENCE: A BUSINESS LAWYER'S PLAYBOOK WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD COMPANIES
Mr. Garth Stevens, partner at the law firm, Snell & Wilmer, LLP and board member of MAPLE Business Council, will share recommendations as to actions that companies should (and should not) take from a business law perspective when faced with adverse situations that may give rise to legal disputes or claims. Topics covered will include best practices for dealing with contract breaches, litigation threats, data security breaches, regulatory violations and investigations, and employee misconduct.

Mr. Mo Ahmad, founder of Vancouver-based Westmark Tax, will discuss US and Canadian tax issues for companies with employees who are working or moving across the border including permanent transfers and short-term or business travellers.

The SBIR Road Tour is a national outreach effort to convey the non-dilutive technology funding opportunity provided through the SBIR/STTR programs.  The programs annually provide $2.5 billion in funding to small advanced technology firms to spur new technological discoveries and facilitate the commercialization of innovations.

The Orange County/Inland Empire stop on the 2017 SBIR Road Tour is coming to UCI Applied Innovation @ the Cove on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 to show how to access and optimize non-dilutive funding opportunities provided through the SBIR/STTR programs.  Attendees will improve their chances for Phase I and follow-on funding!

Program managers from federal agencies representing $2.5 billion in early stage funding will participate in this one day event alongside technology entrepreneurs and the regional innovation ecosystem.

This is a full day event, with check-in starting at 7:30 AM and a networking reception concluding at 6:00 PM.
