Thank you, Atty. Fernandez for agreeing to speak with us during your precious vacation time in Cebu. We really appreciate it!  

We have always wondered why Intellectual Property (IP), Patents and Copyrights are important.   

Dennis encourages us to practice "Strategic Approach to IP Creation", the conscious plan to create HIGH VALUE startups and companies as they ultimately have a stronger economic impact than other types of businesses. Companies are more likely to invest in you or acquire your product if you have IP. Find out more during the meetup. See you there!
