Free Seminar on ‘Building a Business on Your Ideas’ comes to Athlone
‘Learning opportunity for companies to scale businesses or turn ideas into viable enterprises’ - Sherlock

14th March 2013

Minister for Research and Innovation, Sean Sherlock TD, today (Thursday) urged businesses to avail of the opportunity to attend a Government-sponsored free seminar, ‘Building a Business on Your Ideas’ which will take place in the Midlands Innovation & Research Centre at Athlone Institute of Technology, Dublin Road, Athlone, Co Westmeath on Wednesday 27th March 2013.

The seminar, jointly organised by the Patents Office and the Enterprise Europe Network in co-operation with Enterprise Ireland and Westmeath County Enterprise Board, is aimed at small business-owners, entrepreneurs, inventors and start-up companies in Athlone and surrounding counties.  Speakers include experts from the public and private sectors and a local entrepreneur.

Minister Sherlock said: “This seminar presents a great learning opportunity for small business-owners, entrepreneurs, inventors and start-up companies who want to scale their businesses or turn their ideas into viable enterprises”.

“The numbers attending these seminars around the country has been very encouraging and strong, positive feedback has been received from past participants”.

“The seminar will provide an insight into what are patents, trade marks and industrial designs and how they should be managed, how awareness of intellectual property rights can assist in converting an idea into a business opportunity as well as due diligence considerations in setting up a business”.
“There will also be an opportunity to hear about Government supports available from incubation to commercialisation”.

“It is not generally known that over 80% of new inventions are derived from, or inspired by, previous inventions, so following the seminar there will be a workshop which will offer guidance on where to source information on patented technologies and where details of previous inventions can be sourced”.

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and now more than ever they need every encouragement to start and grow their businesses and we in Government are determined to support their endeavours”.  Minister Sherlock concluded.

Admission to the seminar is free but pre-registration is required online at http://www.een-ireland.ie/eei/events/register.asp?eventid=552 You may also register with the Patents Office by phoning 056-7720111 or e-mailing patlib@patentsoffice.ie

The seminars run from 9.15am to 13.20pm and there will be an opportunity to meet and talk to the speakers throughout the day and after the seminar from 2pm to 3.00pm.

This explains why I never understood economics...

SOCIALISM

You have 2 cows.

You give one to your neighbour.

COMMUNISM

You have 2 cows.

The State takes both and gives you some milk.

FASCISM

You have 2 cows.

The State takes both and sells you some milk.

NAZISM

You have 2 cows.

The State takes both and shoots you.

BUREAUCRATISM

You have 2 cows.

The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away.

TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM

You have two cows.

You sell one and buy a bull.

Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows.

You sell them and retire on the income.

ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND (VENTURE) CAPITALISM

You have two cows.

You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows.

The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company.

The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more.

You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States , leaving you with nine cows.

No balance sheet provided with the release.

The public then buys your bull.

SURREALISM

You have two giraffes.

The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION

You have two cows.

You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.

Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.

A GREEK CORPORATION

You have two cows. You borrow lots of euros to build barns, milking sheds, hay stores, feed sheds, dairies, cold stores, abattoir, cheese unit and packing sheds. You still only have two cows.

A FRENCH CORPORATION

You have two cows.

You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads, because you want three cows.

A JAPANESE CORPORATION

You have two cows.

You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.

You then create a clever cow cartoon image called a Cowkimona and market it worldwide.

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION

You have two cows, but you don't know where they are.

You decide to have lunch.

A SWISS CORPORATION

You have 5000 cows. None of them belong to you.

You charge the owners for storing them.

A BRITISH CORPORATION

You have two cows.

Both are mad.

AN IRAQI CORPORATION

Everyone thinks you have lots of cows.

You tell them that you have none.

You still have no cows, but at least you are now a Democracy.

AN AUSTRALIAN CORPORATION

You have two cows.

Business seems pretty good.

You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.
