My Intellectual Property Contract with my old job expires in May (18 Months after downsizing) and I am looking to patent and manufacture my design for a medical device.
The nightmare of having to patent all the instruments and every size option needed is going to be taken care of. Luckily, I fence with a patent lawyer who's helping me out there.
My questions for youse crazy DGs is more on the start-up aspects of running your own business.
Anyone get a SBL? Or grant? Any pointers? (A loan is the option I am looking at currently.)
How do you handle employee payroll? 1099? (I'll need 5 or 6 employees in total, not including research doctors who I have to contract anyway.)
Anything you know or experienced that might help me would be appreciated.
