Solomon IP Management is a tech startup that addresses the Intellectual Property market gap for entrepreneurs, micro and small businesses. In line with this mission, the company looks forward to launching its online platform. Through this platform, the company will start offering its services to individuals and businesses based in Cameroon for trial. It will also provide early access to a select number of subscribers and members.
Their goal is to empower and support individuals and teams throughout the development, protection, and commercialization of their intellectual property.
Thanks to the vision of its founding team of African background, SIP Management is, therefore, looking to address the needs of African inventors, scientist, innovators, and businesses.
According to the company’s Founder, Martial Medi:
“Africa has and has always had great untapped potential in terms of innovations and talents. We truly believe with our platform in place, we can support individuals and businesses across the continent to create not just locally, but also globally impactful value, through optimized management of their intellectual property.
“Our goal is to enable the creation of an African marketplace at the service of Intellectual property, as a means to promote social and financial development. Our platform will provide education on topics related to Intellectual property and tools that will enable our members to truly leverage their assets”.
The SIP Management platform will, therefore, be a one-stop shop for those looking to turn their ideas, products, services, and inventions into well-protected rights and revenue generating assets.
“We are creating a community and ecosystem that promotes and supports the success of Intellectual Property ‒ a long-needed service for Cameroon and the rest of the continent”.
What is IP?
Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names, and images used in commerce. IP is usually protected by law via Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights…
The company is, also, currently running a survey to learn more about the experience of IP owners on the continent. They are, therefore, inviting scientists, innovators, inventors, designers, and entrepreneurs to take part and share their insights. This is, however, for those who own patents, trademarks, copyrights, or industrial designs. Participants will be chosen to be the first to try the platform and join their global community. This will create unique access to a network of experts support and funding opportunities.
“We are building a global network covering legal, design, prototyping, media, marketing, and funding. We are looking to partner with universities. Especially, those of science, technology, and design, to enable collaboration and knowledge transfer,” Martial said.[gtranslate]
