October 2023 is Kentucky Intellectual Property Month

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear recently signed a proclamation designating October 2023 as Kentucky Intellectual Property Month.


Intellectual property (IP) is critical to our thriving innovation ecosystem and bolsters Kentucky’s growing economy by incentivizing investment in knowledge and inventions that drive social and economic impact. Through strong public-private partnerships with KY Innovation, the Kentucky Science & Technology Corporation, the Kentucky Intellectual Property Alliance, and many others, the Commonwealth of Kentucky is creating an equitable intellectual property ecosystem that encourages and protects ideas generating the most social good from industry leaders, inventors, creators, and entrepreneurs.


At KYIPA, we’re celebrating Kentucky Intellectual Property Month by spreading the word about KYIPA, examining Kentucky’s successful IP stories, and more. To get involved, become a free KYIPA member and connect with us on LinkedIn.
