Are you new to the field of intellectual property (IP) or licensing and their strategic connection to business? This highly interactive one-day course teaches you about the various forms of IP and how they can be leveraged to support the primary function of any business – making money! The basics of identifying, valuing and transacting IP are presented, and key concepts driven home by review and analysis of real-world licensing agreements in small, hands-on group exercises. You will finish the day trying your hand at negotiating your own license agreement from a case study. This class is taught by engaging, energetic and experienced instructors who will demonstrate key concepts with LES's signature IP Improv.
