>>venture>> patent search workshop

This workshop is a half-day event with a deep-dive on intellectual property. Get to know how to investigate if your idea is patentable and if your business idea does not infringe on someone else's intellectual property ("freedom to operate"). Assisted by an expert from IGE-IPI, you learn how to conduct patent searches on your own. Please bring your laptop with you to conduct the guided search independently.
