Yesterday the “Startup Fest Europe” had its kick-off meetings and formal opening in Amsterdam with innovators from large companies from US and Europe. Start up festival is an European festival of events that help startups grow faster by bringing together founders, investors, business leaders and developers around specific themes (or verticals). It is held in various Dutch cities from 24 – 28 May 2016. The program can be found here.
Not usually high on the agenda of start-ups is intellectual property. Most of them can only think of patenting their innovation, be it as a prerequisite of investors for safeguarding their investment or as a intended “protection” from competition. However Intellectual Property Management is more than just that. We blogged about the subject many times on the IPEG blog.
We offered StartUpDelta when it as still in its infancy to assist start-ups in their initial stage with intellectual property issues for free. Unfortunately this offer was never followed up. This seems to be the place to reiterate this offer.
IPEG offers a max. of three hours for any technology-start-up in The Netherlands that has issues, questions or ideas on intellectual property at no costs during the StartUp Fest and one month thereafter.
