Business-driven IP strategy focuses on identifying the best ways to maximize business return on investments made in innovation and intellectual property.

As a pioneer in the field, Konsert has over the years gained deep expertise in helping clients translate business needs into IP jobs across a wide variety of industries and competitive contexts.

Our systematic approach ensures a strategic focus on business’ top priorities, and where IP has the highest probability of creating business impact. We help create actionable IP strategy that balances the here and now against the needs to keep future business options open. This ensures efficient use of IP resources in strategy execution and supports the establishment of mutually beneficial dialogue with internal stakeholders.
