A Fresh New Approach to IP Management


We began in the headquarters of Unycom, the leading European developer of enterprise-grade intellectual property management software.

Basing our work on the experience from providing solutions to some of the world’s largest and most innovative companies managing tens of thousands of IP assets, we compared their needs to those of mid-sized organizations, as start-ups, technology transfer offices, and everything else in between. We asked lots of questions, such as:

  • How do current IP software/technology options restrict IP Management opportunities for companies with smaller portfolios or limited resources?
  • What’s most important to a company with 5, 50, 500 or 5,000 patents?
  • How can we modernize IP management software, to organize and present complicated portfolio data and relationships in a way that is easy to understand and visually appealing?

It was surprising to learn how many companies still live with spreadsheets, or frustrating in-house and legacy systems. After clearly identifying specific and unmet IP needs, we saw an opportunity for something new. Something that would be lightweight yet powerful, accessible yet secure, and most of all, easy to use.

We got to work. We selected the agility, speed and security of cloud computing. Inspired by the startup culture of the San Francisco Bay Area, we developed a fresh new approach to IP Management.

In 2012, IPfolio presented a solution that eliminates much of the pain of IP Management. After less than a year on the market, we have attracted a loyal following of customers, continue to invest into our product, and are scaling our operations by building a global partner network.
