Whatever your business, you own intellectual property – design of products, company logo, or knowledge that’s gone into website development. Protected and maximised, IP can bring great business benefit. However, many entrepreneurs and small companies fall foul of the rules and suffer as a result.
This evening panel discussion, part of the ‘Inspiring Entrepreneurs’ series at the British Library, in partnership with HSBC, brings together entrepreneurs who have built success through effective IP management. The panel will also include a leading legal expert to address questions related to patents, trademarks, copyright and IP infringement.
For inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs, this could be the most valuable event of your business’s early life.
