Building a competitive advantage is not something only bluechip companies do. Our virtual IP counsel tool allows us to provide this service to all kinds of businesses at an economy of scale.
A virtual intellectual property counsel that provides critical IP resources via the cloud. The system manages your IP and correspondence remotely.
We'll provide a comprehensive package of services that support you in all phases of the innovation process from the development of an idea up until the commercialisation of intangible assets.
We tailor our IP consultancy to the needs of your company. We understand that delivering IP service to a high-growth startup or an SME can be very different from offering same service to a bluechip company.
We actively build national and international networks of consultants and service providers. Our exchange of experiences puts your IP in the context of an integrated innovation ecosystem.
At Fractional IP, we take a comprehensive and collaborative approach to your IP strategy. Once we’re done, it will attract investment and breed sustainable success. We believe that value draws value.
From experience, we found that the problem with small and medium-sized businesses is not that they don’t create value. The issue is their lack of a management system and strategy that extracts the value created. When you become our client, you get the entire bespoke package. We take on the task of managing and introducing intangible or intellectual property assets into your revenue stream.
