Rupert founded IPfolio in 2012 as a spinoff from Unycom, the leading European vendor of software for very large IP organizations. Before being part of Unycom’s growth story in various roles for almost a decade, he had started his first business by developing the first commercial docketing system for Austrian IP law firms. Active in the field of intellectual property management software for his entire career, Rupert knows the IP software market and requirements in and out. He has worked closely with more than 100 companies and dozens of law firms on all aspects of the IP management process, ranging from docketing to IP workflow automation to inventor incentive programs, strategic reporting, competitive intelligence, and portfolio management.
