Deadline approaching for IP100 applications

IP-rich companies have until 23 March 2018 to join the IP100 and be featured in the initial 2018 rankings and the all-important IP100 magazine. Furthermore the IP100 is expanding and is forecasting 250 entrants by the end of 2018. Join the IP100 by 23 March 2018 to be featured in the IP100 rankings published in April 2018. Stephen Robertson said, “We are eagerly anticipating the next wave of entrants. By entering the IP100, businesses are sending out a clear message to lenders, investors, partners and potential acquirers that they are successfully commercialising their IP to maximise financial returns and protect or expand market share. The market is now recognising the critical role that key IP assets play in securing competitive advantage.”

 

Graeme Malcolm, CEO at M Squared commented, “IP100 has created a great measuring stick for IP-intensive businesses. Companies and investors aspire to invest in IP-rich high growth companies but there has been no external measure of this until IP100. As a deep science business being No 1 on the IP100 in 2017 allowed M Squared to demonstrate our position within the UK Innovation ecosystem and gives recognition of the scale and strategic richness of our IP creation and commercialisation activities.”

 

Stephen Robertson, founder of the IP100 said, “Managing IP and recognising it as a critical business asset is increasingly common amongst SMEs. Both lenders and investors recognise the significance of IP in underpinning a robust and scalable business model, as was evident from the successful fundraisings of our IP100 companies including P2i, M Squared, Sphere Fluidics and many more.”
