Do you want to find out who the nine SMEs and startups that are making waves in health, climate, and advanced technologies by utilizing intellectual property (IP) to tackle both local and global issues, are?

We thought so!

Apart from getting to know what has been happening in these areas, you will also gain insights into the challenges faced by SMEs and startups within the context of IP and learn about the entrepreneurs' essential needs to better commercialize their IP and effectively spread those impactful innovations into the global market.

A bit about the finalists:

This year, the competition saw an impressive turnout, with more than 660 SMEs and startups applying from 107 countries. After a rigorous selection process, a jury of international experts chose, from the 25 finalists, the nine winners of this third edition of the Global Awards.

Coming from 19 countries, the finalists are visionary businesses that have turned their IP assets into tangible solutions for a better society (in sectors such as food, green tech, health, ICT, and the creative industries).

The selection process emphasized the companies' contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals, highlighting the importance of innovation in driving sustainable development.
