MSME National IPR Yatra – 2023


23 & 24 March 2023, Bengaluru

An initiative of Government of India, under the Micro, Small & Medium Enterprise Ministry, the MSME National IPR Yatra 2023 will be conducted across various cities to create awareness about the benefits of IPR and conduct sessions on how MSMEs can filing for Patents, trade mark, copyright and many other IPR related topics.

MSME National IPR Yatra, Bengaluru is organized by MSME DFO, Bengaluru in association with National Law School of India University and co-organised by Small Enterprise India.

With many MSMEs operating in overlapping and crowded markets, the need for competitive advantages and unique selling propositions has long existed. IPRs provide just that, especially for businesses that operate in the manufacturing or engineering space. MSMEs in developing countries like India typically focus on protecting tangible assets such as land or machinery and leave the domain of intellectual property rights (IPR) to larger enterprises. This propensity is set to change with the introduction of the L2Pro platform, launched in the second week of October 2019. India’s base of more than 70 million MSMEs will now be able to utilise this e-learning platform that is designed to guide them on IPR and how they can leverage it to expand their business operations. For small businesses, concepts like IPR have often been beyond their means and dreams. Without a proper understanding of the subject, or training in it, IPR can be a daunting domain for MSMEs to operate in.

The two-day MSME Ministry event on IPR will be a Seminar on Day 1 and Conference on Day 2. The objective is to promote innovations, provide appropriate facilities for the development of the concept to market, design competitiveness and protection and commercialization of Intellectual creations of the MSME sector.
