IP Literacy Training and Educational Support

Content and strategy to increase value and reduce risk

Leverage the expertise of our IP experts through our executive IP education partnerships programs.  

In a 2020 Innovation report to the Ontario government, increased IP education was the single most requested service. We’ve designed a curriculum that offers pragmatic advice and proactive strategies that have been proven over time to meet the need for resources to foster IP literacy.

Created by a team of multi-disciplinary IP experts, our content offerings and educational support go far beyond covering “Patents 101” by providing a mix of practical and theoretical content on all types of IP and how they impact a business.

"I had the pleasure of being in the inaugural class on IP strategy. Not only did it provide practical solutions that I have already started to utilize to improve Pleora’s IP strategy, but I was also able to learn a great deal through interaction with my fellow students.
