A beginner's guide to intellectual property aimed at small businesses for Small Business Saturday.

About this Event

Small business Saturday is a grassroots, nationwide campaign which highlights, and encourages people to buy from, small businesses.

This year, BIPC Glasgow is participating by holding a special Beginner's Guide to IP workshop to celebrate the event:

Intellectual Property (IP) is protection for creativity and innovation. An understanding of IP and its protection is important for anyone with an idea, whether it’s an invention, design, brand name, literary work or a song. This session will give you the knowledge to identify the IP assets contained within your business and how best to protect them.
