I’m on a mission to help as many students and graduates as possible turn their startup dreams into reality. My focus is on helping these aspiring entrepreneurs get to grips with arguably their most valuable asset; the intellectual property (IP) underpinning their business ideas.
For the past 15 years I have been helping students, graduates and startups understand the subject of IP by delivering lectures, seminars and clinics in my capacity as a senior UK academic. I have been recognised for my work in this field by the UK Intellectual Property Office. Others who are aware of my efforts include industry leaders, senior UK government ministers and even the IP Advisor to the current Prime Minister!
I created this blog as a means of sharing with you what I have learnt over the past 15 years. I hope you use my knowledge and experience to transform your understanding of IP. If you do, then you may just find your startup’s chances of success are transformed too.
