Entrepreneurship is notoriously hard work, especially for early-stage innovators. Without access to entrepreneurship ecosystems, even the best ideas can fail. A robust support system is crucial to the success of early-stage entrepreneurs, allowing them to bypass obstacles and accelerate their ventures. Key stakeholders like organizations and foundations often provide much-needed resources and support for young entrepreneurs, but it can be difficult for them to build the infrastructure necessary for comprehensive entrepreneurship ecosystems.
With varying policies and regulations, intellectual property can be a convoluted process to jump into. And, while many faculty that seek to facilitate and support student innovation dedicate courses and workshops on the role of IP, there are a number of obstacles to comprehensive education on these issues. Our team put together this basic guide for navigating IP at U.S.-based higher-ed institutions.
