January 20, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
Is your business at risk without IP protection?
Intellectual Property (IP) is the value that underpins a technology company’s business strategy and commercial success. Protecting your company’s IP with a strong patent portfolio will raise the value of your company and attract investors. Strong IP gives you the freedom to operate your business, shields you from competitors, and even creates opportunity for additional revenue.
What you will learn:
- Different types of IP
- Introduction to utility patents
- Criteria for assessing patentability
- Filing strategies
- International patent framework
