IP Strategy in HealthTech: Maximising the Value of Your Innovation
Jack Severs, Senior Associate, Gill Jennings & Every LLP Over the last two years innovation in healthcare has accelerated further from an already rapid pace, with more patent applications being filed for medical technology that in any other field. But how can HealthTech innovators harness the maximum value of this innovation to drive growth of their ventures and the widespread adoption of their ideas? Recent research shows that SMEs that develop and implement an appropriate IP strategy are more likely to be high growth companies – but what exactly does IP strategy look like in a HealthTech context? This talk looks at the key considerations in developing an IP strategy as an early stage HealthTech company and tackles the questions we’re asked most frequently by innovators in this field.
