Titled ‘Making Money from protected knowledge: Intellectual Property could be your business’ most valuable asset’, the breakfast event attracted over 60 delegates to hear about the issues start-ups and SMEs must consider in relation to IP rights.
Many of the attendees represented companies specialising in tech, clean-tech and low-carbon products, where insufficient IP protection can lead to a company’s most prized assets being placed at risk and the intrinsic value of the business exposed.
Dr David Hardman MBE, CEO of Innovation Birmingham opened the event. Marks & Clerk’s John Ferdinand, Registered Trade Mark Attorney and Simon Portman, Commercial Contract Specialist for technology companies delivered the main presentation.
Marks & Clerk is a sponsor of the Innovation Birmingham Campus and Entrepreneurs for the Future programme.
