Startup Grind Beijing presents
IP Protection in China
Anything you need to know about IP as a Founder
Intellectual property protection is crucial to foster innovation. Without the protection of ideas, founders would not reap the full benefits of their inventions and startups would not be fully compensated for their creations and cultural vitality would suffer.
What we talk about
The talk will cover the important information a founder needs to know about intellectual property and how they can better protect their inventions and company's core technology. There will also be a Q&A session where individuals can clear their doubts about intellectual property. The event will end with a networking session.
