AGENDA
IP CHAMPIONS

The Global Innovation Policy Center’s (GIPC) annual IP Champions Gala recognizes America’s creators, innovators, educators, and policymakers who have captured our imaginations, enriched our lives, created jobs, and helped make our economy the most diverse and dynamic in the world.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

“In an era where technology is ever-changing, it’s increasingly important to incentivize and protect the inventions and creations so that the life-transforming benefits can reach consumers around the world. We are proud to recognize this year’s winners as intellectual property visionaries, pioneers, and guardians.”

-David Hirschmann
President & CEO, GIPC
