Networking

We organize two kinds of networks:

  • those based on shared interests like IPCEX (IP Centre of Excellence) for counsel specializing in IP, patent and trade mark attorneys and specialist solicitors and the Inventors’ Club for independent inventors; and
  • those based on geography such as IP Yorkshire and IP North-West that bring together everybody interested in protecting brands, design, technology and works of art or literature in a region.

The former do things that can best be done centrally such as conferences, publications and negotiating discounts with suppliers. The latter arrange talks, seminars and networking events where entrepreneurs and inventors can meet each other and also local third parties who can assist them such as angels, product designers and professional service providers.

Each of these networks has its own website and you can find more about them by clicking the links on the “Networks” panel of the website.
