Small businesses are increasingly aware of the importance of innovation, of protecting their intellectual property (IP) and using IP to support new ventures – making it a useful business tool. This is not always easy, especially at times like these. Having a sound, knowledgeable and positive approach to IP can increase your chances of success and help give your business or business proposal credibility and value. Small steps can make a big difference.

This talk is aimed at SMEs and individuals, who are thinking about:

  • what to do next;
  • ​how to give a new venture or project, whether in a proposed, new, or existing business, the best chance of success using IP;
  • how to learn enough about IP, both free and registrable IP, to turn it into a useful business tool to open doors and conversations as well as protect assets, rather than a barrier to entry.

The session will also touch on innovation and various ways of looking at your next steps.

Delivered by Dr Kate Macdonald of Capella IP, Kate is a PhD Physicist, European Patent Attorney, Chartered Patent Attorney, Registered UK Patent Attorney and European Design Attorney who started her IP business in 2009 as the financial crisis was inching towards a recovery. It was a good time because people innovate in a crisis and intellectual property protection and advice were in demand.

The resilient, smart, determined and skilled folk of the Highlands will innovate out of this current crisis – how can we make this/do this/build this/protect this/create this? The creativity here is phenomenal and Kate wants to help.
