What Last Year’s Judges Had to Say…

“This year (2017) we had the privilege of judging an impressive set of applicants. Many of them have great business plans and deeper understanding of how to exploit their IP portfolio to expand their commercial operation. This is very encouraging for Singapore on her journey to build and sustain as a vibrant IP hub.”

– Mr. Abhijit Ghosh, Partner, International Tax, PricewaterhouseCoopers

“Intellectual Property Strategy management forms a key ingredient for branding success which involves creating, managing and exploiting IP to gain competitive advantage for the brand. We are very delighted to see a surge in the quality of the entries on how IP is used in their deployment of their brand strategy. This affirms the growth in the adoption of IP as an important strategy amongst our SMEs in Singapore.”

– Mr. Luke Lim, Founder and Group Chief Executive Officer, Louken Group
