Title: Sub-Regional Intellectual Property Workshop for Young Innovators: From Idea to the Market Place
Description: The Young African Innovators, Creators and Entrepreneurs Workshop: Intellectual Property (IP), Innovation, and Creativity for Entrepreneurship and Job Creation, took place in Dakar, Senegal, on November 2, 2015, prior to the African Ministerial Conference 2015: IP for an emerging Africa. The Workshop brought together young African innovators, creators, inventors, and entrepreneurs. The main objective was to give the youth a platform to be educated about the IP system and how it can be used to protect, develop and commercialize their innovations. The Workshop was a resounding success going by the feedback we received from the participants as well as the resource persons.
