Kochi: Startup Village, India’s first telecom incubator, and Inolyst, a leading intellectual property consulting company, will be organising a one-day awareness workshop on Intellectual Property Strategies for Start-ups in association with Nasscom, Kinfra and TiE on May 05, 2012 at their premises in the Kinfra Hi-Tech Park in Kochi. The event will be open to both incubate companies, companies which have applied for incubation and entrepreneurs who wish to associate with Startup Village.
This workshop is intended to provide a clear picture for technology-driven start-up companies on business expertise necessary to manage their Intellectual Property assets as business assets. The workshop will also advise the participants on protecting and creating new intellectual property assets and on how to manage and monetize their existing intellectual property assets.
Sijo Kuruvilla George, CEO, Startup Village said, “A carefully crafted IP strategy, coupled with the informed use of IP rights, is pivotal to organisations of all sizes. Entrepreneurs should make decisions early on about what is vital in terms of intellectual property and take concrete steps to assert ownership, create proof of ownership and retain ownership. This would benefit the start-ups in acquiring customers and also in getting better terms and valuations from venture capitals”.
Inolyst, a rapidly growing Intellectual Property consulting firm in India, is the IP partner of Startup Village. The company will offer its IP expertise to Startup Village through trainings and workshops for the incubated start-ups and helping them build strong strategic IP portfolios.
Dilip Kumar, Founder, Inolyst said, “We are really excited to be a part of Startup Village which is on the lines of our vision towards building a strong ecosystem for innovative start-ups and thus increasing the global entrepreneurial class.”
Startup Village is India’s first Public Private Partnership model Technology Business Incubator. The promoters of Startup Village are Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India; Technopark Trivandrum and MobME Wireless.
