Mentor Clinic – Intellectual Property (Trademark, Patents and Registered Designs)

It is impossible for startups to understand and know how to solve all difficulties they encounter. Mentor clinics are 1 on 1 high level interactions between mentors and entrepreneurs, with topics that focus on: Business Model design, HR, Legal, Fundraising, Supply chain, etc.. The Mentor clinics aim to provide a private, interactive session for mentors to share their experience and advise startups, in their areas of expertise.

Topic: Intellectual Property (Trademark, Patents and Registered Designs)

This clinic is for you if you have a question on effective trademark, patent or design protection and commercialization strategy.

A business can be severely compromised if the product of the start-up infringes the intellectual property (IP) such as an existing patent or trademark of a third party. The indignant owners of the IP can demand heavy damages or close down a competing business entirely. With knowledge in hand, however, businessmen need not back down and may even turn the situation around to their advantage.
