Indian economy is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. As a nation, we believe innovation is one of the most important driving forces for sustainable long-term growth. The government has undertaken several initiatives and instituted policy measures to foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in the country in the form of Digital India, Start-up India, National Skill Development and other programs.
Intellectual Property (IP) is at the heart of innovation, and a robust and comprehensive IP ecosystem and framework encourages creativity and boosts innovation and opens opportunities for public and private players. Innovators (individuals, corporates, academia, start-ups etc.) are increasingly realizing the importance of intellectual property rights to help them protect their ideas and inventions, and monetize them. The impact of all of this is clearly visible in the increased quantum of IP and metamorphic transformation across various industries in the country.
Licensing Executives Society International (LESI) , brings together licensing executives in different countries to build a vibrant community focussed on IP licensing and technology transfer, relationships with policy making bodies, sharing of educational content and success stories in licensing, and advancing the business of IP globally.
In this endeavour, LES APAC and LES India along with Lex Witness – India’s 1st Magazine on Legal & Corporate Affairs as the Official Conference Secretariat join hands to organize a state-of-the-art conference followed by a business plan competition powered by Qualcomm.
