Conference on Intellectual Property Rights at Banasthali

India is home to the third largest number of technology driven startups in the world, with the US and the UK occupying the top two positions. Despite being common practice in other parts of the world, the importance of filing patents has only just become apparent to young startups in India, as the country increasingly moves towards becoming an innovation hub in Asia. Moreover, the Indian government has begun offering incentives to encourage innovators to file patents, including attractive tax rebates and speedy documentation processing and protected ideas indeed lead to high investor confidence.

Economists and academics agree women entrepreneurs are an under-tapped force that can rekindle economic expansion. Research confirms women make better entrepreneurs. Women entrepreneurs are articulate, tenacious and ambitious. Women are proving themselves to be more than capable as they are confident believe in themselves and have drive and urgency to take on the best in the business. According to Global Women’s Entrepreneurship Research, Women are 1.17 times more likely than men to create social ventures rather than only economic ventures, and 1.23 times more likely to pursue environmental ventures than economic-focused ventures.

No one has doubt that a successful entrepreneur requires Information Skills, Problem Solving Skills, Decision Making Skills and Communication Skills apart from Ability for Time, Stress and Project Management. The broad based integrated and interdisciplinary approach of education including the Panchmukhi Shiksha at Banasthali gives ample opportunities from admissions to graduations for developing such skills and acquiring such ability to ensure that winning in tough situations becomes a way of life for the enrolled students. Global majors Google, Cisco and many more are pouring funds in India to stimulate local entrepreneurship and facilitate innovation to make India a global hub for next-generation products and solutions.

Considering the above, Banasthali joined hands with CWEI - Consortium of Women Entrepreneurs of India and Intellectual Property – IP India to organize a one day conference on Intellectual Propert Rights on 07 Feb 2018. After the auspicious lamp lighting, Prof Harsh Purohit Dean WISDOM Women’s Institute for Studies in Development Oriented Management Banasthali felicitated the dignitaries and triggered the proceedings with the customary welcome address.

Dr Shashi Sharma Chairperson CWEI gave the opening address highlighting the use of IP Tools to foster Women Entrepreneurship and gave the clarion call “ we can all do it and let us all do it.” Alumnus of Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law - RGSOIPL IIT Kharagpur, Ms Prigya Arora Patent Associate from lead law firm Khurana & Khurana Advocates and IP Attorneys highlighted the issues pertaining to taking innovations from laboratory to industry and gave an overview of IPR emphasizing on Facilitation and System of Protection of IPR Tools – Patents and Design.

Proud Banasthalite alumnus of Banasthali and Delhi University Ms Jyoti Kumari Partner from K&S Partners Delhi gave an eye opening talk on special issues concerning patents covering biotechnology and elaborated on the mistakes to be avoided by start-ups and entrepreneurs in creating and securing IP. Prof BR Natarajan Head of Chemical Engineering Department Banasthali presented a memento to her and did a chat session on getting GI tag or patent for the much acclaimed Panchmukhi Shiksha model perfected at her Alma mater. Alumnus George Washington University Law School Ms Prachi Aggarwal Managing Associate Anand and Anand shared inside out details on Trademarks and Brand Building as well as Copyright Act 1957 and issues concerning management of IP such as infringement, protection and judicial remedy.

Anchored by Ms Shreya Shanker MBA student of Banasthai, the conference proceedings included a panel discussion and open house followed by vote of thanks and presentation of certificates.
