A patent on a product of your company may give you monopoly/exclusivity on the product for up to 20 years – i.e. you may prevent competitors from selling patent covered product. With reduced competition, you may sell the product at a higher prize and increase earnings and in addition, you may boost the value of your company and thereby be more attractive for investors.
A purpose of the event is to give an overall overview on how to use the patent system in order to boost/maximize your earnings – we will e.g. discuss different strategies suitable for different types of companies, such as e.g. start-up companies that e.g. need to get funding/money from external inventors.
· Brief overview of the patent system
· Why, when and where to file patent applications
· What does it cost and how to tune cost versus needs
· Tricks and traps – dos and don’ts
