eNitiatives was founded in 1999 with an aim to help startups develop and secure their intellectual property rights. As consultants, we work on success based compensation by sharing the risks and rewards of the joint efforts with our clients in reaching significant and tangible milestones.
We assist startups in all stages to build their know-how into strong, strategic Intellectual Property Portfolios, with an aim of increasing valuation. Our work has direct positive affect on M&As and IPOs.
We have worked exclusively with startups for over 20 years, and bring a unique offering to the table which no other firm can match.
eNitiatives was founded by Reuven Marko. An entrepreneur, and a veteran of the Silicon Valley and Israeli startup scenes, Reuven noticed that the process of turning unique know how into valuable, tangible assets wasn’t being given the attention it deserved. The patent process is not a one-size-fits-all, and startups required a different outlook than enterprise giants, which most firms service.
That’s why at eNitiatives we took a conscious decision to work exclusively with startups. Through our own personal experience, we know what it takes from you to succeed, and we are here to help you on your journey. Like you, we are entrepreneurs.
Our partners didn’t just sit on the sidelines of deals. We personally raised funds. We developed products. We did business development, sales, and marketing. We know what it’s like to be in your shoes, because we were there. It’s that sort of deep, intimate insight which allows us to provide you with a service unmatched.
