Week 2 of Entrepreneurship Skills Academy

Whether you’re an inventor, business owner, entrepreneur or designer, the protection of your brand, business identity, invention or design is an important consideration. IP is often misunderstood and overlooked, however if you fail you fail to protect it, a business can be at risk and others can take advantage of your potential competitive.

The presentation will cover:

  • What is intellectual property?
  • Where do I start with my intellectual property?
  • Trade marks
  • Patents
  • Designs
  • Copyright
