Did you know that while your products, ideas or innovations may be protected in Canada with a trademark or copyright, they may not be protected in other countries.

Without proper IP protection, you could limit your business from future development, expansion, possible funding or even existing.

What is ElevateIP?
The ElevateIP program is a federally funded, nationwide initiative aimed at equipping Canadian start-ups with the essential resources to understand, develop strategy, and create intellectual property (IP) assets. Intellectual property encompasses more than patents. IP includes company assets such as trademarks, patents, copyrights, industrial design, and trade secrets.

ElevateIP offers financial support of up to $100,000 to develop and implement your IP strategy. With the ElevateIP program, you will be prepared and protected at a fraction of the cost. Be proactive and safeguard your intellectual property today!

Join us to discover:
  • Why IP protection is important

  • How you could get funding from ElevateIP to help
