The NextGen CTO Program aims to develop the next generation of CTOs (Chief Technology/Technical Officers). CTOs are important executive-level positions especially in innovation-driven companies as they lead the technology department and oversee the development and innovation of new products and services. CTOs must understand the importance of intellectual property (IP) and how IP can be leveraged strategically to grow their businesses.
Participants will gain an understanding of various forms of IP and develop IP savviness that will give them a competitive advantage in their future careers, whether as a CTO at their own startup or for other organizations.
This program is open to students from all faculties, as well as business owners, entrepreneurs, and like-minded people in our community. We invite anyone who wants to learn more about leveraging Intellectual Property in their projects and businesses to apply.
