Limited Capacity seats available

Inventions can be protected by legal rights - patents - but making money from them requires a business plan.

Different innovations require different approaches to secure investment, deter infringement and protect market share. See how deciding to file a patent (or not!) fits into the bigger picture of research and product development.
