Celebrating World IP Day (and inovia’s 11th anniversary!)

This time last year, inovia celebrated an important milestone.  On the eve of World IP Day, we celebrated our 10th anniversary and took a trip down memory lane.    

This year, we’re celebrating World IP Day again, along with our 11th anniversary.  Here’s a shot of our New York team:

Many things have changed in the last year as we continue to grow:

  • Our agent network now reaches 120 countries.
  • In November we launched a direct (Paris Convention) filing service, to complement our PCT national stage entry and European validation services. 
  • The inovia.com community has grown to over 3,900 law firm, corporate, university and individual users who are using our technology to reduce the cost and administrative burden of their foreign filing work.  Learn more about what our foreign filing portal can do for your practice.

World IP Day is celebrated each year on April 26 because it was on that date in 1970 that the World Intellectual Property (WIPO) Convention came into force.  The day’s purpose is “to promote discussion of the role of intellectual property in encouraging innovation and creativity.”

Fun fact: inovia‘s technology, which streamlines the foreign patent filing process, is patent protected and is recognized by WIPO as a PCT notable invention

We’re looking forward to another great year!  How are you celebrating World IP Day today?
