OwnershIP by iF: Accessing Essential IP Resources and Funding

As an entrepreneur, you are faced with constant pressure from funders, investors, and customers to have an intellectual property strategy to protect your novel technology or innovation before entering the market. Having a secure and defensible IP strategy can mitigate risk in your business model and ensure a competitive advantage that investors will back with real investment dollars.

Not only that, you have limited time, money, and resources to begin this onerous task of developing an IP strategy that will lead to success in securing their IP.

Join Brent Downey from Innovation Factory as he brings forward educational resources, frameworks, and opportunities to increase your education around intellectual property and which government funds can help your SME take the next step in their intellectual property journey. In this virtual webinar you will get an introduction to:

  1. NRC IRAP’s IP Assist Framework
  2. How and why intellectual property is critical as a competitive advantage
  3. An introduction of OwnershIP by Innovation Factory
  4. How you can take advantage of OwnershIP programs and resources to secure your IP
  5. Funding opportunities available in connection with OwnershIP
  6. Q&A, plus next steps


If you are an Ontario based small-to-medium sized organization that has developed a novel process, technology, or production of work such as books, plays, music, etc. then this webinar is for you. Learn how to navigate the various forms of IP tools that best meet your business needs.

After attending this webinar, SMEs should have the knowledge and education of NRC IRAP’s IP Assist Program and how OwnershIP by Innovation Factory deploys essential IP resources and funding to support IP protection.

Audiences should have the confidence to ask questions and take the first step in accessing governmental funds and education by applying to OwnershIP by Innovation Factory.

The event is finished.
