Is the IP in your business investment ready?
Intellectual Property (IP) is in every part of your business – from product development to manufacturing. The IP audit and the IP strategy are two key management tools that can support your business plans ensuring you are prepared for investors when they are considering investing in your business.
An IP audit helps you identify what assets you have, their protection status, where you are using them along with any legal issues. An IP strategy considers your commercial goals detailing how you are managing your IP assets and handling any threats to it, such as infringements or competitors.
In this session we will use practical, day to day examples helping you identify red flags in your audit and giving ideas on how to create a robust strategy. These will help you discover new ways to capitalise on them and make better strategic business decisions when it comes to leveraging new opportunities.
