Local graduate student teams presenting their business plan in a three minute elevator pitch format.

Come join the party at this after work social gathering and networking event and enjoy meeting others in the Chicago IP community.  Beverages, libations and hors d’oeuvres will come part and parcel to meeting other Chicagoland individuals whose professions touch the intellectual property world.  It is Around The World with LES (ATW) celebrating WIPO's World IP Day and the importance of IP to the global economy.  Licensing, intellectual property and business development professionals along with local students whose studies integrate IP into their programs are all welcome to join in this fun event.  Along with the event, we will take a short break in our networking activities to introduce a few graduate student teams that have recently competed in the LES Foundation Graduate Student Business plan competition incorporating an IP component.  They will present their business plan in a three minute elevator pitch format.
