Every Business Owns IP: What do you own?
Fri 9 June 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
We are delighted to be hosting this valuable workshop presented by the Intellectual Property Office.
Most successful businesses, large or small, are built on well managed intangible assets like intellectual property (IP).
Businesses create and use IP all the time, perhaps without realising it. Whether it is the name of your company, branded products, website or even marketing materials, the value of IP can far outweigh the value of your physical assets.
The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) helps businesses, innovators and entrepreneurs understand how IP can create value from their ideas, turning inspiration into sustainable business success.
This very successful workshop has been designed for SMEs. The workshop aims to give participants a good overview of intellectual property and how it can impact SMEs in the UK and overseas.
Please complete the IP Equip online course, www.ipo.gov.uk/blogs/equip/ before attending this workshop.
The audience is broken up into small teams and presented with a series of scenarios in which intellectual property is crucial to a business. Once the teams have debated a scenario amongst themselves, the Intellectual Property Office speaker(s) take the audience through the answers to the problem.
Who should attend?
SMEs who believe they have IP that should be protected or that they want to explore.
