Can you name a female inventor?
Until relatively recently, patent applications for inventions have typically been made by men. In this light it is fascinating to discover how many of these ideas were really the work of women, and also bring to light the little-known women who broke the mould and brought their inventions to life themselves. Women’s Enterprise Day is about celebrating women who have been successful in their business ventures, and inspiring other women to do the same. We now live in a society where women are accepted in the business world, and as part of Women’s Enterprise Day, we would like to offer inspiration, information and advice to encourage this further. We will be finding out how other women have gone about it in the past and present in order to gain an understanding of the history and processes, and then really getting to grips with licensing your invention exploiting your IP rights.
Own-it and Innovate-design have invited Deborah Jaffé to speak about women inventors throughout history, and the inventor of the Anywayup Cup, Mandy Haberman, to speak about her experiences as a female inventor and business woman today. We have also invited a lawyer who will discuss relevant IP issues including how you register a patent, protect your invention and licence your resulting product. There will be an opportunity for questions at the end.
