He has obtained non-dilutive, non-repayable cash grants and subsidized labour for his firms in the seven figures. Immediately prior, he was employed by Webtech Wireless Inc. where he tripled the size of the patent and trademark portfolios and obtained copyright registration for source code in the US and Canada while reducing the aggregate total IP expenses incurred. Prior to Webtech, he was employed by the multinational electronics corporation Koninklijke Philips Electronics N.V. in the Intellectual Property and Standards Division (“IP&S”) as Senior IP Paralegal. More specifically, his position was within the Creation Team attached to the Lighting Business Group. Taran acted as sole paralegal to two attorneys situated in Boston, handling all docketing and eFiling for both. In addition, the IP&S executive branch seconded Taran to manage post-merger integration issues following the $4.5 billion USD acquisitions of several lighting firms.

IP harvesting and due diligence prep
Without extensive customer lists, inventory, or revenue, what gives a tech startup value? Without defining and protecting your IP and other intangible assets, a tech firm will be undervalued. With good guidance, the collection and protection of IP is unobtrusive, inexpensive, and will comprise a tech startup’s most important assets.
