The fourth in a series of IFO workshops reframing entrepreneurial failure. Led by Nessa Carey, Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Oxford University

Learning and pivoting from failure is the theme of Innovation Forum Oxford's 20/21 ACE Saturdays workshop series. This is the fourth workshop in the series, led by Nessa Carey Royal Society Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the University of Oxford. Find out more about the entire workshop series here.

Intellectual property (IP) has no intrinsic value. It only has value when used as a business tool. In this workshop, we 'll cover how to align your IP strategy with what you want to achieve, using a mixture of discussions, exercises, informal presentations and case studies of real world examples, both successful and not-so-successful, drawn from Nessa's own experience.


Nessa is a Royal Society Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the University of Oxford and also runs her own consultancy and training business. She worked for just under 15 years in a number of senior roles in the biotech and pharma sectors, and is a former academic who specialised in human molecular disorders. Nessa is a Visiting Professor at Imperial College, a Non-Executive Director for three companies, and the author of a number of popular science books.
