NAIPEC AND NATIVE INNOVATION
The Native American Intellectual Property Enterprise Council (NAIPEC) supports invention and innovation in the Native American community by providing quantitative patenting, copyright, and trademark assistance. By helping individual inventors or tribal communities bring new concepts to market, NAIPEC is at the intersection of industry and academia, facilitating opportunity and helping create new knowledge-based enterprises.
