August 13, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


In conjunction with Asia Hardware Battle (AHB) 2018, TechNode, together with IPOS and ACE, is co-organizing an Intellectual Property sharing session for all AHB’s applicants and all entrepreneurs who are keen to learn more about IP protection. This IP sharing session is facilitated by IP Strategist, Dr Huang Zhiqiang.

Date: 13th Aug 2018
Time: 3pm – 5pm
Venue: ACE International Centre, 67 AYER RAJAH CRESCENT, #04-16, S139950

Event Synopsis:

Intellectual property (IP) and in a broader sense intangible assets (IA) account for up to 87% of a company’s business value today. Through innovation and new technology, your business will have created significant value which may be largely hidden. Well managed assets can work together to give businesses a distinct commercial advantage against global competition, while poorly managed assets will inevitably damage the business. Take the first step in your IP journey with IP ValueLab’s Intellectual Property Strategist, Dr Huang Zhiqiang, as he shares what these intangible assets are and how you can leverage on them to grow your business.
