Bring your creations to life. Learn why intellectual property matters.
Wednesday, November 14 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
ATB Entrepreneur Centre, Edmonton
Innovation starts with an idea—your idea. Are you developing your idea into something tangible such as building a brand for your business or creating a product to sell? If so, then you need to know about intellectual property (IP). This seminar will introduce you to trademarks, patents, trade secrets, industrial designs and copyright, and explain how protecting your creations through IP rights can give you an advantage over your competition.
