Hi Sellers - I'm sharing some educational events taking place in the Bay Area over the next few weeks. Enjoy!
Intellectual Property: Protecting Your Ideas, Brands, Designs
February 20, 6 - 8 pm (free)
You may have the right to protect your unique business name, ideas, or creations from being tarnished or knocked off by a competitor… but how do you do that affordably on a tight budget? This workshop will introduce you to different types of intellectual property (focused primarily on copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets), and will provide you with self-help resource information to start building a simple but solid foundation of protection through rights searches, NDA’s, registrations, licenses and other tools. Although taught by an experienced business attorney, this class does not constitute legal advice.

Women Mean Business
March 13, 6 - 8 pm ($15)
Deundra Hundon and Stephanie Dixon founded their mother-daughter doula business several years ago and will speak about how their partnership works, and their commitment to serving mothers. Come hear their story over wine and snacks, with time for networking included. All genders are welcome at this event.
Women Mean Business: Creating Long Term Success
March 20, 6 - 8 pm ($15)
MOST BUSINESSES DON’T SURVIVE THE FIRST 5 YEARS, BUT THIS ONE IS THRIVING 2 DECADES LATER! Martha founded Martha Montag Brown & Associates, LLC nearly 20 years ago and has consulted with over 50 foundations, companies and nonprofits nationally. Come hear Martha’s story and enjoy an evening of networking and refreshments. All genders are welcome at this event.
Since March is Women's History Month, Renaissance is offering a two-for-one deal on the Women Mean Business events. Register for both here for $15.
