Corporate IP Training & Culture development

It is not the most intellectual or the strongest species that survives, but the species that survives is the one that is able to adapt to or adjust best to the changing environment in which it finds itself

Intellectual Property knowledge and awareness among its personnel plays an important role in helping a company gain business value from its IP assets. Over the last decade, BananaIP Counsels, earlier Brain League, has been actively involved in building IP capacity, spreading IP awareness, and sensitizing corporates on IP developments that impact business. Having trained more than ten thousand (10,000) corporates on different aspects of IP, BananaIP’s training team has an insight into what companies specifically need, how it can be packaged to get best results, and what maximizes business benefit.

From basic and advanced programs to skill development sessions, BananaIP has designed training courses that suit specific sectors and clients. While our basic programs are aimed at disseminating general IP awareness, the advanced and skill development programs help corporates gain actionable knowledge and skills. Corporates, educational institutions, research laboratories, hospitals, hotels, and film production houses are among BananaIP’s training clientele.

BananaIP’s training programs are offered by leading experts in the field of IP. They carry with them business experience, insight into IP law, and thought leadership. Many of them have been educated at, and teach at premier institutions such as IIM Bangalore, National Law School of India University – Bangalore, Indian Institute of Technology – Bombay, and more.
