Intellectual Property and Entrepreneurship
It is important for anyone to protect his or her ideas. For entrepreneurs, it is essential to safeguard this investment.
Intellectual Property (IP) systems can be critical in helping new ventures transform their innovation potential and creativity into market value and competitiveness.
Intellectual property rights (IPR) can be used to protect the technology, brand name, design and creativity behind the concept. It gives the creator sole ownership of the concept, in a similar way to owning physical property like a house or car. Owners can control the use of their intellectual property to gain financial reward.
In this talk, we talked the importance of protecting intellectual property for entrepreneurs and investors.
Suggested discussion topics for talk:
- What is the IP System?
- How do entrepreneurs protect their ideas?
- What types of IP Protection are Available?
- What policies relate to the IP system and innovative entrepreneurship?
