Smart & Biggar sponsors GLOBE Capital and discusses IP Strategies to attract capital in cleantech

Smart & Biggar is proud to sponsor the GLOBE Capital virtual conference, taking place on April 13 to 15, 2021. GLOBE Capital brings together North American and global leaders, investors, innovators and policymakers with an interest in scaling the clean economy.

As a sponsor, Smart & Biggar will host the Workshop in Growth panel “IP Strategies to Attract Capital in Cleantech: Generating Value and Return on Innovation”, on April 13. Cleantech investments are a priority for companies across industries and are at the forefront of innovation and economic development for Canada’s Net Zero future. It is vital for companies developing cleantech technologies to have a pro-active IP strategy that aligns with business goals to protect and leverage valuable intangible IP assets. For cleantech companies, securing effective IP protection at an early stage is critical to create tangible value, drive commercial success, and attract investors and partners.

Firm partner Lei Liu will moderate the panel made up of C-suite panelists from a range of cleantech companies and investment funds, who will share their top IP tips and lessons on how to attract investment to scale for growth, and generate value and return on innovation, with a clear IP strategy.

Smart & Biggar partner Mark Pidkowich and associate Walter Chan will also attend the conference.

GLOBE Capital virtual conference registration is available here.
