IP Bridge


At IP Bridge, our focus is on promoting technological innovation and cooperation within Japan and around the world. We work with our investors, including Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ), a unique partnership between 26 major corporations and the Japanese government. With INCJ, we established the first and largest fund in Japan (approximately $300 million), which is aimed at global innovation and IP-related investments. Our mission is to activate and leverage high-quality, under-utilised IP assets for the benefit of a variety of IP owners based in and outside of Japan. Our vision is that these activities will stimulate economic development and the healthy growth of industries worldwide.
We have worked with leading technology companies, small and medium-sized enterprises and universities to build large, high quality patent portfolios of 3,500 patents from around the world, including those in the fields of wireless communications, semiconductors, video codecs, display technologies, automotive technologies, robotics, home appliances, electric devices, healthcare, environment and energy, food technologies and medical engineering.
Our world class team includes experienced IP and corporate management professionals from major technology companies, investment funds, financial institutions and law firms. We have the global experience and relationships to provide comprehensive IP services, including IP-based business incubation, monetisation, licensing and financing (to generate revenue, fuel innovation and business expansion), syndicated transactions (to remove potential IP risks to our clients) and IP consulting services (to build IP strategies, maximise IP value and best position our clients for success).
