About the event

Licensing agreements hit Stephen Keys desk every week — by and large, without any intellectual property (IP). What do you really need to sell your ideas, then? A strategy.

He knows first-hand just how much debate about IP needs to be reframed away from legal jargon and towards a critical eye for business. The truth is you don’t need a patent to sell your ideas. Inventors and entrepreneurs wonder, how will I patent this? When in reality, they need to be asking, how am I going to use intellectual property to profit?

At this event Stephen will cover:

  • The win-win strategy he has developed to license ideas
  • Writing provisional patent applications that stop workarounds and copycats
  • How to negotiate with companies looking to license your ideas
  • How to reduce risk and get a licensing agreement signed
  • Hear about his latest book Sell Your Ideas With or Without a Patent

The cost to attend this event is £50 per person, which includes:
