We love innovation and ideas! Did you know that 18,145,100 trademark applications were filed in 2021? Yes, that’s 49,713 every day! We are inspired by those creative people who design and invent things and want to provide them with an intuitive and connected platform that protects and safeguards their intellectual property around the globe.
But to do that, we had to create the infrastructure that removes the legal complexity and heavy manual processing that has been prominent in this industry for decades. Each country has a its own IP processes and systems to protect innovations, so the platform must overcome these hurdles and simplify these diverse processes — a bold but very achievable goal. RightHub is a company of combining exceptional IP experts and top-experienced software developers and designers committed to building the first collaborative and inclusive platform that connects forward-thinking creators and IP professionals everywhere.
In an archaic industry full of single-point solutions that haven’t improved since email, we knew it was down to us to get innovative and bring all our passions into creating this movement.
RightHub has built the first collaborative and inclusive platform in the IP Industry. Using data, open APIs, and automation, RightHub will vastly reduce the cost and risk involved in obtaining, maintaining, and enforcing IP.
Innovation is the lifeblood of human progress. Every day, everywhere, incredible creators are inspiring us all by crafting the future of humanity, the planet, and even the universe.
But what is RightHub really? In its current state, managing intellectual property is a cumbersome process requiring multiple tools and human interactions. Most people know what a patent or trademark is, but they don’t realize the complexity of the proceses to deal with IP rights. Today companies spend billions on obtaining, managing and licensing IP. Still, until now, these have all been separate systems lacking modern technology and the use of data to aid the burden of human error. Around 50% of budgets are spent on administrative tasks instead of value-adding activities.
Our bold vision is to transform an industry with an intuitive and intelligent software stack. Since the commencement of RightHub in 2021, we have signed up over 1,000+ IP professionals into our online community. Our software aims to massively reduce (if not eliminate in some regards) the overall cost of obtaining and maintaining IP Rights for businesses and their representative IP professionals.
RightHub is built to perfect the art of protecting IP. We have applied the intelligent use of data and automation to allow IP professionals, foreign counsel and clients to collaborate in a smart, simple, profitable way. We have raised over £10 million in capital from VC firms and other strategic investors to achieve our vision.
We are building the first true ecosystem for Intellectual Property by allowing IP owners and Law Firms to interact with modern uses of data, design and automation baked inside one platform that can be a joy to use.
Alongside our knowledgeable team, we like to work closely with Law Firms and IP owners to ensure our platform delivers what the industry truly needs. By working with the various stakeholders, we are continuously growing our network for businesses and individuals to benefit from the next time they protect their IP.
During COVID-19 in 2020/21, livelihoods of people around the globe were disrupted. In an industry heavily reliant on people driving manual administrative processes and highly complex legal work, the intellectual property industry saw a considerable disruption as people were forced away from offices for the first time.
It was time; To boldly step out and transform the industry so it becomes truly digital for the first time and uses technology to help safeguard innovation around the globe. It is also essential for us to facilitate collaboration and openness globally and help promote innovation and advance fields.
Did you know that 3,223,200 patents were filed globally in 2020? And that figure is set to grow each year as businesses become more focused on generating and protecting innovation. Companies are constantly looking for new ways to manage their growing portfolio of intellectual assets and are also looking increasingly at ways of protecting these assets.
Our vision extends beyond our company and transcends into the wider IP community. We want to empower individual creatives to take control of their ideas and innovations and protect them, transform the way businesses hold, manage and process their intellectual assets, and drive global collaboration and advancement in fields for the good of the global economy.
As an industry built on keeping things a secret, no data was shared, and information was kept locally. We are stripping that right back and opening up connections, not for ourselves but for the entire industry to operate and sell their services directly.
Intellectual property is at the front line of innovation.
As a company with bold ambition, we knew people were the key to success. RightHub runs a company-wide employee option plan. This has been transformational for the company and will ensure everyone’s hard work is recognized and acknowledged in the future. We are truly building a future together.
RightHub has launched a ‘linked-in’ for the IP World, which allows people globally, from the tight-knit IP community, to come together, share, enjoy and interact. We showcase IP professionals each week to share their journey, achievements and skills to allow everyone to be seen and heard.
We have also focused on providing tools and training to give people within the community valuable assets that they can use and learn with. We also offer training schemes for all of our staff and encourage employing interns and graduates to boost their future careers.
Furthermore, we already have over 15 different nationalities in the company across our offices. This brings a whole different approach to building an international culture and mindset.
We hope you will join us in our bold mission to transform the IP industry.
