Embarking on the entrepreneur journey is an exciting endeavour, but having a brilliant idea alone does not guarantee success – it requires recognising the value of your creation(s) and protecting your intellectual property (IP). In today’s dynamic business environment, protecting your IP at an early stage is particularly vital for microbusinesses and freelancers to thrive within the respective industries, and it provides a competitive edge for achieving growth and profitability.

Join us in this talk designed for microbusinesses and freelancers, to gain valuable insights on leveraging IP assets and strategise on protecting your IP.
