Anaqua is a privately-held company headquartered in Boston Massachusetts with offices across Europe and Asia. Their software and services help corporations and law firms gain a true competitive advantage from their intellectual property. Anaqua was founded over ten years ago when IP leaders from The Coca-Cola Company, Ford Motor Company, and British American Tobacco identified an important gap within enterprise software solutions. Managing IP with patchworks of commercial and homegrown systems left them with unreliable data that increased their costs and exposed them to risk. They took matters into their own hands by collaborating on a new web-based, unified system for intellectual property – a comprehensive software platform capable of managing and automating the full IP lifecycle of patents, trademarks, designs, trade secrets and contracts. That collaboration was the beginning of Anaqua – the world’s first web-based unified platform for intellectual property. Today, ANAQUA software is used by nearly a million IP executives, attorneys, paralegals and administrators in corporations and law firms all over the world. Many of the best known brands and most innovative products were conceptualized, evaluated, protected and monetized through the ANAQUA software platform.
