Intangible assets represent approximately 80 percent of the value of the Standard & Poor 500 and dominate the ability of companies to compete on both a global and regional landscape. Successful operating executives often outperform their competition through better innovation and through better legal protection of their intangible assets to leverage them as intellectual property.

The 2017 Innovation & IP Business Summit is for senior operating executives and will address current best practices for developing, strategically positioning, and leveraging innovation and intellectual property to increase business performance, as well as fostering and promoting innovation in the organization.

The event takes place May 17-19 in Isle of Palms and is presented by the Faber Entrepreneurship Center at the University of South Carolina's Darla Moore School of Business. Womble Carlyle is a Platinum Sponsor of the summit.
