Mark Bouris' most valuable asset...

"What every business owner needs is someone who is going to ask the tough questions. ... The whole idea of a business adviser is having the comfort of knowing that there is someone on your team who's been there and done that."
Mark Bouris, Founder

If your business is driven by a unique product, a great brand, a new invention or other intellectual property, IP Resources can help you make the most of these assets.

A great video on the state of innovation in Australia and what to do about it - I could not have put it any better. (Thanks Tim!)

Could your business do more?

Unlike some consultancies that are long on advice and short on implementation, I am happy to roll-up my sleeves and provide expert, hands-on assistance, as necessary. Professional expertise when you need it, without the drain on the payroll. Would that be useful to you?

IP Resources is a consultancy business based in Sydney, Australia in the specialist field of intellectual property (IP) and licensing. IPR specialises in helping businesses of all sizes with practical, commercial advice in:

  • business development
  • licensing and franchising
  • product development and commercialisation
  • patents, trademarks and intellectual property strategy
  • dispute resolution
  • contract negotiations, and
  • finding grant and investment funding

IPR will also help you work more (cost) effectively with lawyers and patent attorneys.

If your business could do more, but you're not sure how, then let's talk.

IPR's clients are predominantly from Sydney and Melbourne, but IPR also works with companies in non-metropolitan areas, interstate and overseas. If IPR can add genuine value to your business, let's talk.  If others are better placed to assist you, I can probably recommend someone who I trust in that area.

I look forward to hearing from you. Contact me TODAY!
