Company Updates

  • We all had fun at the PatSnap Annual Sports Day last week, reliving our youth with a classics such as the Wheelbarrow race, Egg and Spoon and Three-Legged Race! It was a great day of nostalgia, friendly competition and all finished of with a much needed BBQ party!

    The event was run by the PatSnap Employee Forum, a cross-department team of PatSnappers whose mission it is to ensure we have a positive culture, with an engaged and motivated workforce.

    We also ran a charity raffle with the money raised being donated to Mind!


    Sequoia has backed PatSnap, another UK tech startup that's focusing on China

    Sequoia, one of the most famous venture capital firms in the world, has made another rare investment in a UK tech startup. The Silicon Valley VC firm - which backed Apple, Google, and Facebook in their early days - has led a funding round in a London-based cloud software company called PatSnap, which describes itself as an "IP intelligence" business.

    Fantastic customer universe and market place if your curious about technology and best practice innovation. Evolving and maturing ''go to market'' team which is working on some game changing strategies.


    Very fast paced and sometimes choatic - guessing that's normal for a venture capital backed SaaS business. Also the founders are relatively young so sometimes get shiny toy syndrome:-)

    Advice to Management

    Our naturally evolving focus on ''innovation intelligence'' is very excisting and engaging. Please stay focused on this as I feel we are really on to a long-term winning stratgey.
