Protect innovations, don't hide them

Intellectual property for start-ups

Start-ups have to protect their ideas and technical innovations with limited resources in order to secure their future. In addition to protection against plagiarism, it is important to have a strong negotiating position in dealing with investors, industrial partners and customers. Industrial property protection offers a range of tools to start-ups that can help them improve their position when dealing with partners, customers and competitors. In addition, financing can be actively supported by securing the investors' investments. It is important that start-ups become active at an early stage and seek appropriate legal advice so that the early innovative power of the start-up is used optimally.
