Mathy's & Squire, 29th May, The Shard, London

IP and manufacturing start-ups

A start-up’s key assets are typically that they are:

(i) smarter;

(ii) more agile; and

(iii) have better ideas.

In this session hosted in Mathys and Squire’s offices in the Shard, we will be discussing why protecting your start-up’s Intellectual Property (IP) is crucial in preserving those assets, and how that protected IP can be used to achieve your business goals (whether that is revenue generation or something else)

To give context to this discussion, we will be hearing a case study first-hand from a business that has successfully navigated that journey from start-up to profitable business by leveraging the protection of their intellectual property into a revenue-generating business stream.
