Lending company founders a helping hand – our start-up consulting

New business ideas call for courage. As experienced consultants, we want to give you the backup you need and provide you with the best possible protection. It is particularly important for start-ups to make use of the numerous opportunities presented by property rights to have ideas patented and inventions protected. After all, these are the foundations on which a company is founded, and doing so makes it easier to find investors and financing partners.

With our start-up consulting, we will help you through all phases of the protection of industrial property rights, from successfully establishing your company and protecting your business ideas to defending your rights on the market. That way, you can turn your invention into a real competitive advantage.

In addition to a free initial consultation with Dr. rer. nat. Maximilian Knaus, our expert in start-up consulting, we offer a special start-up program: WSL-Innovation. Through WSL-Innovation, we will help you to devise the perfect strategy for property rights for your growing company.
