Pro Series is a once-a-month workshop around skills that are essential to startups, students, and professionals abroad! This month, given University policies, we’re moving Pro Series to an all-digital event. Nothing slows down for entrepreneurship!

On April 2, from 6 – 7 p.m. NC State Entrepreneurship welcomes Daniel Cole, Intellectual Property Attorney at Olive Law Group, to cover the basics of Intellectual Property (IP). Daniel will be covering patent and copyright law, how to tell if you need an IP lawyer, and what they can do for you. These skills will arm you with the knowledge you need to begin your journey into IP effectively and confidently.

This event is open to NC State students and HQ Community members.
