We’re holding a half day IP seminar, Intellectual Property for Business and Financial Benefit on February 14th at BananaIP Counsels in Bangalore. Spaces are reserved exclusively for Senior-level individuals, R&D Leaders, Technology and Innovation Driven Startups.

How to take advantage of IP in today’s business context in India?

Intellectual Property has today emerged as an important business tool in India. From financial  valuation and increasing business revenues to gaining business advantage and market share, IP is being used effectively by large and small companies as well as startups to gain business and  competitive advantage. The increase in number of patent, trademark, industrial design and copyright filings in 2019 indicate the increase in value being given by businesses to different forms of IP. The tightening of enforcement mechanisms, progress of judicial understanding, and implementation of transparent and efficient systems augur well for technology and knowledge driven companies in India. Simply put, the IP ecosystem in India is now  most suitable than ever before, and  provides the environment for business benefit.
This specially designed session, led by Dr. Kalyan C. Kankanala, a well known IP leader in India, provides unique insights into the progress of the IP system and strategies for business/competitive advantage. Among others, the session will cover  the following questions:

  1. How should companies look at IP in today’s business context?
