Marks & Clerk Intellectual Property breakfast seminar

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.

The event took place on Wednesday 3rd July in the Conference Room in the Innovation Birmingham Campus’ Faraday Wharf building, utilising a range of presentation equipment and Twitterfall screens.

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.
