Spark Centre’s implementation of the IP Assist Program is designed to support innovative technology companies so they can understand, assess and make strategic business decisions with regards to their company’s Intellectual Property innovations. The program is structured into two different steps:
Tech firms have access to a 2-hour free consultation to help them betterunderstand IP and how their innovations can be transformed into valuable assets. You can choose to workwith our internal IP Advisor, Tony Orsi, your own IP Expert or choose from our IP Expert Referral List.
Tech firms receive services valued up to $10K towards the development of an IPLandscape Brief that supports the firm’s business goals. Strategic IP Landscape Briefs* provide an analysis of the company’s innovation that reveals business, scientific or technological trends, typically with a focuson a single geographic region, industry or technology at a point in time. The tech firm is required to pay a $250 administration fee upon approval.
In addition to these three steps, tech firms will have access to an additional 2-hour free consultation with Spark Centre’s IP Advisor, Tony Orsi from Bereskin and Parr, to address any concerns or opportunities regarding their IP.
The IP Assist program is no longer accepting new applicants at this time. Please contact [email protected] for information on how you can receive IP Support.
