“IP Strategy and Building Company Value”
A workshop for area businesses on the subject of intellectual property and strategy.

Many companies have a business strategy, fewer companies have an IP strategy, and even fewer companies integrate their IP strategy with their business strategy in a way that builds significant company value.

Agenda:
• The basics of an IP strategy, including consideration of how to develop and protect IP in a cost-effective manner;
• How an IP strategy can be integrated with a business strategy;
• How to make money or create value in your company using an IP strategy;
• Interesting case studies and approaches to implementing an IP strategy to enhance company value.
