More Information and Description: Professionals in many disciplines need to know about how to gather information about companies for comparative prospects and for interviewing. In addition, patent and prior art searching is a topic that inventors will find useful to understand. In this one hour session we will discuss sources for finding company and market profiles, searching through patent literature and other government documents, and some basic questions you can ask when gathering intelligence about a company or market.
