Intellectual Property Rights for Entrepreneurs

Intellectual Property (IP) systems are critical in helping new ventures transform their innovation potential and creativity into market value and competitiveness. Intellectual Property rights (IPR) allow innovative entrepreneurs to protect their inventions. They may also have multiple other functions, such as signaling current and prospective value to investors, competitors and partners, accessing knowledge markets and networks, and preventing rivals from patenting related inventions. Evidence at the firm level indicates a positive correlation between patenting and new ventures’ growth, access to venture capital and survival. Ideas need to be protected: know the IP Policy at your tertiary institution or even the workplace. Our guest lawyer Rutendo Machiridza Mugadza gives insight on Intellectual Property Rights.

My Career After Student Activism

Youth participation in national discourse is crucial. Student activism becomes the key to unlock intellectual engagements for development. Student activists already face an array of anomalies: name-calling by other students; victimization by authorities; arrest and detention among others. As if it’s not enough, these anomalies are a red flag to any employer. Careers Zimbabwe through this podcast: ‘My Career After Student Activism’, pushes the ideation of supporting intellectual and peaceful participation in national discourse. Students thus need to engage and know what employers expect of them as well as active students to let employers know that they can perform even when they are activists. To best talk about this area we have Cde Makomborero Haruziviishe and Charline Vuta.

If You Can't Find A Partner/Spouse That Supports Your Career: Stay Single

Professionally ambitious women really only have two options when it comes to their personal partners — a super-supportive partner or no partner at all. Anything in between ends up being a morale- and career-sapping morass. Professionally ambitious man seem to just have it all with the Bible and society on their side. The call for a new thinking and way of marriage engagement with careers in mind is arguably feeding the increase in divorce cases. Overally it's an issue of VISION - for a relationship to succeed you need to both understand the VISION. In the studio we have Connie Nawaigo and George Chirenda.Disclaimer: Views expressed by the guests are personal and are not in an way the views of their respective employers.

Do Your Masters or Get A Job: This Will Help You Decide

One of the most common questions that students ask as they draw near to graduation is if they should pursue a postgraduate degree or enter the job market?

Whatever your aims, keep in mind that postgraduate study requires you to invest your time and money, it will not automatically be relevant to all of your possible future career goals.
