About Inngot

We're on a mission to help organisations everywhere unlock the commercial potential of their intellectual property and intangibles. Our tools and services solve the twin problems of asset identification and valuation that have made it difficult for companies to harness this vital source of value, normally absent from balance sheets.

We recognise that IP can be complex - even confusing. That's why we've developed classification structures, online tools and interfaces which address the language barrier and make it easy to get to grips with IP.

Our board

Inngot's directors are experts in intellectual property and intangibles, IP and finance law, IP licensing and exploitation, business investment, complex data systems and information management
