Who We Help: Enablers
Helping IP Get to Market!
In the complex intellectual property ecosystem, many people play a role in getting ideas productized, packaged, protected, and into the market. Beyond protectors (such as legal professionals), others who play a role include marketers, manufacturers, corporations, consultants, and investors. We refer to these other groups as “enablers” because they help facilitate the movement of IP from head to hands.
As an enabler in the IP ecosystem, it is essential to understand how IP protection intersects with your role and how even the enablers can become creators in the process! GIPA is a valuable resource for enablers to help make IP less intimidating. We provide resources, expertise, and connections to demystify the complex and sometimes confusing legal domain so that enablers are better equipped to support the creation and innovation process.
