From Idea to Value is a 1-day workshop was the opportunity to get a perspective on the means and the crucial issues related to transforming Ideas into Value. Protecting intellectual property is one of the topics covered, but we look also at some of the issues related to initiating new ventures, either as an entrepreneur starting a new company or as an entrepreneur starting a new profitable business within an enterprise.
With that respect, I gave a presentation on the patent @SAP, from invention creation to patent filing. Patent acquisition is an important part of SAP innovation strategy. Areas of interest go from cloud to mobile, including security, in memory processing. Therefore, SAP strongly supports and encourages its employee to patent new ideas.
The presentation is available on demand..
