A clear IP strategy is crucial for realising your primary business objectives.
A commonly misplaced view is that the sole purpose of a patent is to enforce it against others.
In reality, a patent can be an invaluable tool to help build value for your company and establish key relationships.

In this webinar, Part 2 in our series on the Power of the Patent, Dr Andrew Clarke and Dr Katherine Rock, co-founders of Innofy, will present five key reasons why SMEs and start-ups should consider filing patents for their technologies – and how this might align with your business goals and objectives.
