engage AG with its head office in Karlsruhe and branch offices in Rostock, Leipzig and Berlin is a company focussing on IP Asset Management and on the founding and set-up of growth-oriented high tech companies. Therefore, the key competence of engage AG is creating value from intellectual property.
In the field of IP Asset Management engage AG supports its customers and partners in the identification and the protection of marketable ideas and research results by means of industrial property rights, as well as in the elaboration and implementation of sustainable property right strategies.
In the field of portfolio management engage AG focuses on the founding and set-up of growth-oriented high-tech companies in close cooperation with leading universities and research institutions.
Both areas are linked by engage’s key competence to actively support the further development of early stage research ideas and results. Although the challenges, questions and tasks of both areas are similar, they differ as far as the kind of return on investment is concerned – selling of shares vs. licensing or sale.
