Part of the 2021 New Ventures BC Competition Presented by Innovate BC
Throughout the spring New Ventures BC will host our weekly Startup Seminar Series, giving you the information you'll need to build and grow your business, and even perform better in the #nvbc2021 competition!
What you'll learn:
Trade-marks and patents can be daunting for the first-time entrepreneur. Do you need to go through registration? In what jurisdictions and when? What are the rules around the elements of intellectual property in Canada and beyond? Roger Kuypers and Ling Wong will guide you on this process, giving you the basics you need to better investigate your options. April 21, 2021, 1:00 - 2:30pm, online
