About the IP Strategy Boot Camp
The IP Strategy Boot Camp was developed in collaboration between Western’s Faculty of Law and WORLDiscoveries to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of how to protect and manage their intangible assets. This program is best suited for inventors, creators, entrepreneurs, and startup founders aiming to protect and commercialize their intangible assets through patents, trademarks, industrial design, copyright, and other types of intellectual property rights. This program is also ideal for students, staff, and faculty who are interested in learning about how to develop an IP strategy for their projects. This also provides a great networking opportunity for entrepreneurial minded individuals.
Enrollment is limited to 25 participants, so register today to secure your spot! Upon attending all six sessions and completing the assignments, you will receive a certificate of completion.
