I first learned about Konsert through my master’s education where Konsert had guest lectures in topics such as IP strategy and management in modern business. I also participated in Konsert arranged events to meet and get to know the team. Right from the start I got the impression of Konsert as a company with highly ambitious individuals aiming to achieve out-of-the box thinking. In combination with always striving to break new ground and providing niched consulting services, everyone seemed genuine, and with a high ambition to grow as a team.
I felt that Konsert was a place where I would learn and develop, while contributing with my drive, curiosity, and interest in the impact of digitization and IoT on business environments. Furthermore, despite its smaller organizational size Konsert is working with some of the largest global companies, targeting intriguing and complex challenges with its unique expertise on how to manage technology, know-how, data, and IP to strengthen competitiveness and profitability. Hence, to me, Konsert almost seemed too good to be true.
During my first 10 months at Konsert I have been involved in several client engagements. The work has included developing business-driven IP strategies for a mobility solutions provider and for an innovative energy management supplier. In both projects we worked in close collaboration with the clients to define strategic business priorities in relation to IP and where to focus IP creation and management activities to successfully navigate the client’s ecosystem for current and future business ambitions. In addition, I have supported global companies with IP cost efficiency initiatives and in framing governance of IP.
In addition to client engagements, I am also part of Konsert’s strategic marketing team. I have worked with employer branding activities and is managing our social media channels. Our team trips for internal knowledge sharing and teambuilding have additionally allowed me to become further integrated into and familiarize with the team and the Konsert culture. The flat organization is a cornerstone in Konsert’s culture and way-of-working. Every team member is encouraged to voice their opinions, ask questions, and suggest solutions, which builds a place with entrepreneurial spirit and creativity.
Working as an Associate at Konsert has been nothing short of my expectations, and most enriching. Apart from joining a great culture and team, I also enjoy being part of developing the company.
