London and Glasgow events

We are delighted to announce that we are kicking off 2017 with two fantastic IP100 events. The first event will be held in London on the 7th of February and the second in Glasgow on the 9th of February, both focusing on IP strategy.

Whether it’s an IP strategy focused on: (1) boosting the exit valuation of a business, (2) improving your fundraising outcomes, (3) getting a return on investment from your IP expenditure to date; this event will explore whether or not your business can afford not to have an IP strategy.

The event is a must for all IP100 entrants as developing and taking the first steps to implementing an IP strategy will help entrants improve their score and ranking in advance of the next IP League Table, due to be published at the beginning of Q2.
