Intellectual Property
by Tony Olson, D2 Worldwide

Intellectual property (IP) makes up 35% of the total U.S. economy, yet many companies know very little about it. Tony Olson of D2 Worldwide, a North Sioux City technology firm, will walk you through IP and how this little understood asset drives some of the biggest developments in business, arts, science, and government. Join us to learn more about IP - what it is, what it protects, how to start a program, and how to protect ideas.

The Small Business Education Series is free for members of the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce.
