The application process to join Fish & Richardson’s new program, FISHstep, will be closing on September 17, 2014. FISHstep was created to provide select startup companies with a means to protect their valuable intellectual property early in their formation, often before the first round of seed funding, without diverting cash from the business.

If selected to join the FISHstep program, startup companies will receive assistance with the preparation and filing of a patent application, with deferred billing until the company receives seed funding, in exchange for 1% of the startup company’s equity.

Interested companies can apply to the FISHstep program by completing the online application found here. There is no fee for applying. All applicants will be evaluated by a Review Committee – a panel of startup experts, including angel investors, founders, business leaders, and intellectual property attorneys.
For further information, please contact us at FISHstep@fr.com, follow us on Twitter @FISHstep, or visit the FISHstep webpage here.
