In the spirit of World IP Day 2021, the KannonIP academy will host an online webinar on "Launch your ideas to the market!" to reflect on how SMEs could benefit from IP various forms, such as Patents, Designs, Trade Marks, Trade Secrets, Copyright, etc.
Every April 26th WIPO hosts a celebration for World IP Day to learn about the role that IP rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity. The theme for 2021 is IP & SMEs: Taking your ideas to market.
It is said that every business starts with an idea. Millions of SMEs that operate across the globe every day started with just a concept translated into a product, inserted into the market, which contributes to the development of the economy.
At this time when economic recovery is highly essential, World Intellectual Property Day 2021 shines a light on the critical role of SMEs in the economy and how they can use IP rights to build stronger, more competitive, and resilient businesses.
According to Wipo, SMEs make around 90 percent of the world’s businesses, employ around 50 percent of the global workforce and generate up to 40 percent of national income in many emerging economies, more, if informal businesses are counted. Therefore as a backbone of national economies, it is essential SMEs become aware of IP right's importance in their developing process.
SMEs are the backbone of national economies. They deliver the goods and services we need every day; they hatch breakthrough innovations and inspiring creations and they create jobs; some become the world-leading businesses of tomorrow.
