The fast growth secrets of tech founders

Learn about what tech founders wish they’d known about IP protection and navigating the transition from start-up to scale-up.

Starting and growing a successful business is no easy feat. But it’s even harder if you’re trying to do it on your own. That’s why it’s so important to learn from the experiences of others who have been there and done it. But unfortunately, when battle-hardened founders get together to share experiences, it’s usually behind closed doors.

To create this report (the first in a series), we brought together a group of experienced SaaS, DeepTech and GreenTech founders and investors to share their top tips. In this guide, you’ll find the basics of what every founder should know about IP. And you’ll hear from fellow founders on what they wish they’d known about IP protection when they started their businesses.
