Join our IP Start programme for start-ups


Most start-ups are aware that intellectual property (IP), and more broadly, intangible assets (IA), are key to its value. However, amongst competing demands of R&D, fundraising, business model validation, etc., start-ups often do not have the time to look into what appears to be a particularly technical and legalistic topic. We are here to help.

Our IP Start programme helps start-ups like you take charge of your IA and IP with curated resources, practical advice, and hands-on guidance.

Get answers to the top 3 IA/IP questions that start-ups ask:

How do I protect my technology and product?

  1. Should I get a patent?
  2. What other forms of IA/IP are relevant to me?
  3. How do the various IP registration processes work?

How do I articulate the value of my IA/IP to investors?

  1. What are my key IA/IP?
  2. How is IA/IP valuable to my business?
  3. How do I value my IA/IP?

How do I work with partners?

  1. What form of partnership is more suitable for me?
  2. Are the terms of my research collaboration or licensing agreement fair?
  3. Will my partner/manufacturer misuse my secrets?

We’ve advised over 200 companies on IA and IP issues to date. We intimately understand how start-ups can navigate these issues. IP Start will give you the head start you need to manage your IA and IP, navigate obstacles, and prepare you for scaling.
