This workshop is delivered in partnership between D2N2 Growth Hub and Swindell & Pearson Ltd and is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Description

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.

This workshop, delivered by leading experts in this field, is an ideal opportunity to find out how your business could benefit from making the most of your IP and ensuring you are taking financial advantage of what it offers.

  • ‘Introduction to IP’ – what is IP, where to access online support, international scale – delivered by Gary Townley from the Intellectual Property Office
  • Trademarking – what to trademark, enforcement, potential issues – Swindell & Pearson
  • Implications of Brexit – managing an international strategy – Swindell & Pearson
  • The support of an Attorney – what can they provide? - Swindell & Pearson

Who Should Attend?
This workshop is open to SME's in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, including business advisers and coaches, accountants, those working in the financial sector and mentors.

ERDF

This workshop is part-funded via the European Regional Development Fund, therefore we are required to evidence that you are a small to medium enterprise.

There will be a couple of forms that will need to be completed either prior to the event or on the day and these will be sent to you once you have registered. One form is to ensure you are a small to medium enterprise, the second is to capture any business support you have received over the last 3 years to ensure you haven’t exceeded €200,000. If you have previously completed these forms at a Growth Hub event you will not have to complete another set.
