Spoor & Fisher commits to IP partnership with the SA Innovation Summit

Innovation lies at the foundation of intellectual property – and this is why Spoor & Fisher is proud to be the IP law sponsor for this year’s SA Innovation Summit.

As a specialist, full-service international intellectual property law practice, Spoor & Fisher is perfectly positioned to advise innovators on the IP law aspects and implications of bringing their ideas to market.

The Summit will take place from the 21st to the 24th of September 2016, at the Birchwood Hotel & OR Tambo Conference Centre.

The Summit will once again run two exciting competitions – and Spoor & Fisher will sponsor pro bono services to the value of R30 000. This is to assist inventors, start-ups and high-growth companies to secure protection in law for their prize-winning IP.

Aimed at individuals who want to take their idea from concept to commercialisation, the Inventors Garage offers a combination of a cash prize and invaluable exposure, as well as technical expertise including that of Spoor & Fisher’s IP specialists. Entries for this competition close on 31 July 2016 – and further information can be found here.

Start-ups and high-growth companies are the target of the SA Innovation Legends Pitching Den. Entrants will be given the opportunity to present their innovative solutions to an independent panel of judges – with a range of exciting prizes and opportunities awaiting the winner. The deadline for the submission of entries is 31 July and click here for further details.
