What is project innovate?
Project Innovate is an initiative of Godfrey & Kahn’s Emerging Companies Practice Group. Through a combination of networking events and classroom instruction, we bring together entrepreneurs, investors and representatives of innovative companies to help build successful businesses.
Godfrey & Kahn advises entrepreneurs and their early stage companies on every stage of their growth. Our advice is practical and given with our clients’ business objectives in mind. Responsiveness to our clients is a top priority. We take a long-term perspective and, when needed, take a flexible approach to how we structure our relationships with emerging companies. Focused on building lasting relationships, we want to work with emerging companies throughout their entire lifecycles, from formation to funding, strategic partnerships, commercialization, and ultimately through exit.
