Netherlands Patents Office | RVO

IP advice

The Netherlands Patent Office’s patent advisors help technically oriented, innovative entrepreneurs to make smart use of intellectual property rights.

 

What do you offer startups?

The Netherlands Patent Office’s patent advisors help technically oriented, innovative entrepreneurs to make smart use of intellectual property rights, such as patents. After all, these rights are an extremely important aspect of developing a business: from start-up to scale-up. We use one-on-one sessions to zero in on the intellectual property that dovetails with a company’s strategy and development. We also provide assistance when it comes to searching patent databases and we give presentations and workshops. The Netherlands Patent Office provides these services independently, free-of-charge  and confidentially.
