You may not be 007, but your IP is worth protecting as if it was a MI6 database

Intellectual property protection is the key to continued innovation. Without protection of ideas, businesses and individuals can have their inventions and startups snatched away from them.

Many a times entrepreneurs are scared to even discuss their ideas with others for fear of someone "stealing" their ideas. If they do not have their IP protected, this is a completely rational fear.

You wouldn't leave your front door unlocked, or leave your bike on the rack without a lock, so why leave your IP unprotected and vulnerable to theft?

Learn how to lock in your ideas to make sure that you are the only one with the rights to them.

In this masterclass on IP and patent laws, you will learn how to protect yourself from others stealing what is rightfully yours; your ideas and your startup!
