This workshop is for any Social Entrepreneurs who feel they need to:

  • Understand the importance of protecting their valuable business assets such as logos, inventions, products and designs, with information on copyright, patents and trademarks
  • Understand the laws that must be followed to expand their team and ensure a fair relationship with their employees
