Mathys & Squire announces plant Biophilica, producer of leather alternative made from urban plant waste, as the winner of the firm’s world IP day SME pitch event.
The Mathys & Squire Scaleup Quarter team hosted a virtual pitch event on Monday 26 April 2021 to celebrate World IP Day. The theme for 2021 was ‘IP and SMEs: Taking your ideas to market’. With SMEs making up over 99% of all UK businesses and contributing around half of all business turnover in the UK, the importance of supporting such businesses in their growth and development is clear for driving economic recovery and human progress.
A recent study found that companies that own at least one patent, registered design or trade mark generate 55% higher revenue per employee than companies that do not own IP rights. The Mathys & Squire team works with SME businesses to help protect their IP assets with an aim of creating value from their innovative and creative ideas, so this year’s World IP Day provided the ideal opportunity to hear from some of those early-stage businesses and provide feedback from experts in the investment and business mentorship communities.
