The Workshop // Intellectual Property (IP) Growth Strategies
Learn how Intellectual Property (IP) Strategies can be leveraged to boost business growth. Hosted by Sisule Musungu the Managing Partner and Team Leader for Intellectual Property (IP) at Sisule and Associates.

The 21st Century has variously been dubbed as the knowledge age or information age to signify the role that knowledge and information now play in all spheres of life.

It is for this reason that intangible assets, of which Intellectual Property (IP) is one, are today considered key assets in any business be it a start-up or established business.

According to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in 2019, there were over 4 million industrial designs in force, over 14 million patents and over 58 million trademarks.

But while IP is now a buzzword in business, how can one, especially Startups and SMEs, leverage Intellectual Property (IP) for growth when you consider the costs and technicalities associated with IP protection? Where do you start?

How do you know what type of Intellectual Property (Patents, Trademarks, Industrial Designs, Copyright, Utility models) is relevant to your business? How do you know the value of your IP? How do you get your IP to market? How do you monetise your IP? Is IP all about protecting what you have or are there other ways to think of Intellectual Property (IP) for your business?

As an attendee of this webinar, you will not only be able to answer the above questions but you answer the above questions and know what strategies to employ in relation to:

  • Determining what Intellectual Property (IP) you already have,
  • Valuing your IP,
  • Financing the protection of your IP,
  • Commercializing or monetizing your IP,
  • Accessing IP from others,
  • Leveraging IP for your business growth even where you do not own any.
