We deliver strategies, services, and products that build shareholder value from intellectual assets.

About Us

Our business aim is to make IP transparent and simple to understand for everyone, and to allow our clients to demonstrate IP Sophistication™ in managing this area.

Education and Awareness

We provide training, education and awareness on IP. We have presented at the EVCA’s IPR Master Class in 2015 and 2016 to VC and PE audiences (with excellent ratings for relevance and clarity) and to the European Patent Office’s IP Business Conference and the European Leadership Program’s CEO training sessions, again with excellent ratings.

Our Service

IP Strategy

Does your business have an intellectual property (IP) strategy? The vast majority do not, or believe that a vague set of policies and a few patent filings represents a strategy. A properly implemented IP Strategy can build added shareholder value, even in a tough economic climate. ipVA creates and implements IP strategies that deliver practical results for businesses throughout the world.

IP Governance™

Do you know what questions to ask of your business to understand if its IP is being effectively managed? ipVA has developed eight IP governance modules that provide answers to these questions and build a framework for effective IP management and reporting. These modules embed IP awareness and transparency into your business.

IP Benchmarking™

Do you know how your IP quality and management compares to your competitors? Do you know how your IP governance measures up against the world’s leading IP companies? Companies demonstrating IP sophistication and management demonstrably and consistently out-perform their markets and competitors. ipVA can compare you to the best.

Achieving Business Goals

We act for VC and PE investors at all three stages of a typical investment; diligence, holding period and exit, and combine our world-class human capital with our proprietary tools and methodologies around innovation, invention, and IP.
