Every April 26, World Intellectual Property Day is celebrated to learn about the role that intellectual property (IP) rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity. Each year has a different theme.
World IP Day 2022 focusses on IP and Youth: Innovating for a Better Future where the light shines on young inventors, creators and entrepreneurs and how they can use intellectual property (IP) rights to achieve their goals, generate income, create jobs, tackle local and global challenges and support community and national development.
Innovus had a different approach this year and planned a virtual entrepreneur tour. Stellenbosch University entrepreneurs and start-ups show case their businesses and/or projects. We invite you on this tour with us.
As part of the journey of innovation, entrepreneurs and business creators should know how to negotiate the best deal for their business. Our TTO Director, Dr Kleyn started the World IP Day Journey in Ingolstadt, Germany where she ran a deal negotiation course on 26 and 27 April and we share here with you a glimpse of the entrepreneurs dealmaking experience
