Webinar: Intellectual Property for Early Stage Businesses (10 June)
About this webinar
Starting a new business is a daunting task, and not something for the faint of heart. Entrepreneurs require passion, drive and a stubborn perseverance borne of a determination to succeed. Every business owns some form of intellectual property and it has fast become recognised as a key asset. After all, IP can be seen as a driver of value, as it builds goodwill and can attract investment. Those businesses who innovate and form strategies to protect their ideas early on will thrive.
Many of the businesses that we work with are using this time to reflect, adapt, create, innovate and plan for when things start picking up again. And with any innovation, you should be thinking about protecting what you’re developing. So, on that note, we would like to invite you to attend the “Intellectual Property for Early Stage Businesses” webinar.
- The main forms of IP protection and appreciate how these apply to your business
- How to create a successful IP strategy
- What investors look for in relation to IP
- Patent strategies
- The costs involved in IP protection and funding innovation
This is a free interactive workshop webinar with the aim to provide sound practical learning from material presented, case studies and group discussion.
By the end of the workshop all attendees should have developed better knowledge of the different IP and Patent strategies and understand what is applicable to their businesses going forward.
