IP Basics for Startups

Whether it’s a trademark or brand, copyright, patent, know-how, trade secrets, intellectual property rights can be extremely valuable for your business. During this workshop, we will discuss the basics of intellectual property while also analyzing how intellectual property can be used as a strategic advantage in your business.

We will explore a variety of different topics including
• Identifying the different forms of IP (patents, copyright, trademarks, trade secrets, industrial designs), what they protect and for how long
• Learning how intellectual property can be used as a strategic advantage in your business

In this workshop, special guest Myra Tawfik, EPICentre Professor of Intellectual Property Commercialization and Strategy, will be leading a one hour workshop followed by a question-answer period.

The event is open to all UWindsor students, members of the community, entrepreneurs and past EPICentre workshop participants.
