How can it help my business?

Innovation IP will help you maximise value from your business IP by teaching you how to:

  • Collect new information about your business so you understand the competitive IP landscape in which it is operating
  • Develop and integrate your IP strategy with your business and R&D strategies, and planning processes
  • Manage IP risk to improve your competitiveness - domestically and internationally
  • Improve your understanding of ‘freedom to operate’ and managing risks associated with potential infringement of another party’s IP rights
  • Confidently and cost effectively engage IP specialists

New Zealand-based businesses that are:

Great course, nice balance of theory and takeaways we can use in our business right now. Well worth the time and effort to attend even when we are in a busy phase.
