Intellectual Property Office Workshop
Delivered by: Intellectual Property Office
Every Business Owns IP What do you own?
Most successful businesses, large or small, are built on well managed intangible assets like intellectual property (IP).
Businesses create and use IP all the time, perhaps without realising it. Whether it is the name of your company, branded products, website or even marketing materials, the value of IP can far outweigh the value of your physical assets.
The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) helps businesses, innovators and entrepreneurs understand how IP can create value from their ideas, turning inspiration into sustainable business success.
