USPTO-IP Strategy is a Business Strategy

Wednesday, April 5, 2023 - 9:00am to 10:30am
Have you considered how intellectual property (IP) can add value to your business and what types of IP you may already have? The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), in collaboration with the Arizona Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network, will provide a brief overview of the four major types of IP and discuss why innovators and entrepreneurs should consider them in their business plan.

Topics include:

  • Overview of intellectual property types: patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets
  • An introduction to the new IP Identifier tool
  • Why innovators and entrepreneurs should consider protecting their IP
  • Understanding the risks of early disclosure
  • Resources and assistance available through the USPTO
