    Event description

    Whether it’s a new invention, a brand name or a song you’ve written, there are IP considerations you need to be aware of from the genesis of a business. The more you know, the better equipped you’ll be to get the most out of what you’ve created either by yourself, with co-founders or when engaging with IP professionals.

    If you can harness it correctly or cleverly, IP can deliver significant value and differentiation to your business.
