What has been done?

Where did we have these roadshows?


  • Participants from the MSME sector as well as Startups were eager to know complete details of incentives offered under the Scheme for Facilitating Startups Intellectual Protection (SIPP) and other incentives on offer,
  • Commercialization and marketing were the biggest bottlenecks for the entrepreneurs in the state of J&K and the North Estern states. There were requests to setup IP Facilitation Centers that could provide handholding/support to entrepreneurs and innovators through the entire process of IP filling for monetization of their IPRs,
  • It was felt that strengthening of the judiciary and enforcement system, escpecially in Tier-2 cities, would go a long way in improving the IPR environment in the country,
  • A platform connecting academicians and research scientists with venture capitalists and technology incubators aborad would be a great step to promote industry-academia collaboration,
  • There were requests from schools and colleges to organize similar IP awareness programes in their campuses
  • Numerous requests were put forth to organize focused awareness events on Copyrights, Geographical Indications, filling process and the benefits of IPRs.
