Many companies have made innovative use of their intangible assets (IA) and intellectual property (IP) to drive business growth and value. Are you one of them?

Back for its 11th edition, the WIPO-IPOS IP for Innovation Awards celebrates Singapore enterprises that have achieved outstanding growth through their successful use of IA and IP. Since its inception in 2013, 50 organisations have been conferred this pre-eminent accolade.

This year, we seek to recognise IP champions who have leveraged the effective use of IP to innovate, transform, and grow their business. If you are one of them, nominate your organisation and get the recognition you deserve as an IP champion and shine on the global stage at the Awards!
