IP Disruptors: The companies and people driving change and upending IP norms
The IP industry is changing, and leading the charge are an array of disruptive forces. IAM’s first Special Report in collaboration with sister platform WTR identifies the tech-powered service providers, mavericks and cutting-edge companies that we consider to be true disruptors in the IP space.
But first, we must define what it means to be an IP disruptor. Our report looks beyond organic progression in the industry to focus specifically on disruptive change. Our sights are set on revolution, not evolution. These disruptors are individuals or companies poised to revolutionise the ways in which IP managers, teams and owners operate in the future.
We have scrutinised every stage of the IP lifecycle, from ideation and R&D to protection, enforcement and monetisation, to uncover the innovators, strategists and enforcers making the biggest operational changes to our industry.
Our list is not exhaustive but, by identifying these disruptors and their varying approaches to IP management, we aim to empower IP professionals to respond to the forces shaping their field. And so, we present 20 entities and individuals that we believe will continue to transform the IP landscape in 2024.
IAM and WTR strive to foster a community that continually explores and celebrates the transformative potential within intellectual property. The IP Disruptor Report is a testament to embracing change, challenging paradigms and blazing new trails in IP management.
