Over the last few years, Intellectual Property (I.P.) strategy has become a cornerstone of our venture advisory services, and for good reason. Proper IP planning adds value, improves competitiveness, and is a tremendous funding lever that signals to investors and customers alike that you aren’t just a start-up, but a unique business with something new to bring to the table.
Launching February 3rd, in partnership with Bereskin & Parr, the new I.P. Strategy Bootcamp is an 8-week program that will provide participating companies with group and one-on-one assistance, creating a full IP strategy for your business and products.
“We’re so fortunate to be able to offer up this bootcamp with our partners at Bereskin & Parr, because each participant will leave with an IP strategy fully vetted by a lawyer, a service that normally costs thousands of dollars just to start,” says Adam Castle, WEtech Alliance’s Director of Venture Services. “A new year calls for new tools, and research continues to show that a strong understanding of IP needs to be in every startup toolbox.”
By the end of the bootcamp, each participant will develop a practical customized IP strategy, which they can then implement as their business develops.
Key topics include:
• Why IP is important
• Patents and patent alternatives
• Intro to joint developments
• Technology & brand protection
• How to present your IP strategy
The application deadline for this cohort is Friday, January 14, 2022. Interested in applying for this FREE bootcamp? Become a WEtech client to get started!
