Ask Me Anything: Why Intellectual Property Is More Than Just Patents

This Ask Me Anything Session, hosted by Innovation Economist, Charles Plant and Intellectual Property Advisor, Alexis Conrad Black, will provide an overview of Canada’s IP landscape, as well as discuss strategies for startups to ensure that their IP helps them win in an increasingly competitive environment.

Tech startups and scale-ups need to embrace the creation of new forms of IP or they risk stagnating and failing. In this new realm of intellectual property, simply filing patents is no longer enough.
