Recent innovations in intellectual property take center stage at a unique event planned for the fall in Dover.
DoverTech, which will be held on Oct. 19, 2010, will bring together buyers and sellers of intellectual property in a forum intended promote business and innovation. Inventors and intellectual property owners will make brief presentations for those interested in purchasing, licensing or developing intellectual property.
The organizers of DoverTech are reaching out to a wide variety of participants, including inventors, entrepreneurs and investors from across the country.
Dan Barufaldi, Economic Development Director for the City Of Dover, New Hampshire, said the event underlines the need to create new jobs and generate better wages for workers in Dover and the entire region.
“The fostering of technology transfer as a means for the development, support and encouragement of businesses and entrepreneurship is necessary for the building of an advanced economy,” Barufaldi said. “As the United States becomes increasingly a knowledge-based culture, knowledge in the form of intellectual property — specifically patents, trademarks and copyrights — can be traded, developed and commercialized for the purposes of creating wealth, as well as more and better jobs.”
In addition to promoting technology transfer as a means of economic growth for Dover, the event is also intended to market the city as an attractive place to conduct 21st-century business, including the sale and licensing of intellectual property.
The event’s primary sponsor is the Dover Business and Industrial Development Authority, a nonprofit economic development organization.
