August 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This session will introduce you to trademarks, patents, trade secrets, industrial designs and copyright, and explain how protecting your creations through formal IP rights can give you an advantage over the competition, and identify potential partners. You’ll also learn common pitfalls and costly mistakes to avoid, how to develop an IP Strategy specific to your business, and budget, and CIPO’s free, unbiased guidance and learning resources for entrepreneurs. There will be a Q&A, and opportunity to book a private one-on-one meeting with the IP Advisor.
