The USPTO Is Teaching Entrepreneurs About IP Strategy (August 18th-20th, 2021)

In a recent press release, the USPTO had this to say about the event:

 

If you are an entrepreneur, your creative work is among your most valuable assets. Don’t miss your chance to learn how different types of intellectual property (IP), such as patents, trademarks, and copyrights, are critical to your business strategy. Learn more and register early for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) free online Invention-Con 2021: Capitalizing on your IP, coming August 18-20. 

Note this year’s special student programming: The August 18 agenda will feature Gitanjali Rao, inventor and TIME magazine’s 2020 Kid of the Year, and other young innovators who will share their experiences and insights. Please feel free to share the event link: www.uspto.gov/InventionCon.

Take this opportunity to hear from business and government experts about turning ideas into innovations, protecting your work, and accessing valuable resources that can help you succeed in the marketplace.
