IP Workshop: Trade Secrets & NDAs

February 18, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


Join Noel Courage and Suzie Suliman from Bereskin & Parr LLP to learn about Trade Secrets and NDA’s.

The protection of a startup’s IP is especially important in the early stages when most of the IP is a secret. Secrecy can be challenging given the goals of many startups to enter pitch competitions, work with research partners, and draw in potential investors. During this webinar we will discuss how to effectively protect secrets, including the basics of effective confidentiality agreements. We will also discuss how to decide whether to patent an innovation or keep it a trade secret.
