Under the agreement, ProspeQta becomes IPfolio's distribution partner for South America effective January 1st, 2013. A particular focus of ProspeQta's activities will be in its home country of Brazil, which leads the continent by a distance in terms of R&D as well as IP output.

IPfolio founder and CEO Rupert Mayer welcomes ProspeQta as its second international partner, with more to be announced soon: "After Patracode in India, this is another very promising partnership that allows us to reach an important market. We are excited to work with ProspeQta, and are working on further partnerships around the globe."

"The market for commercial IP portfolio management tools is still nascent in South America, and we see great potential for IPfolio across different industries, including universities and research institutions in the public sector. Brazil in particular is a strong emerging IP market with ample growth potential for solutions to help organizations of all kinds effectively manage their IP portfolios," adds Andre Bechuate, co-founder and CEO of ProspeQta.

Built on the secure platform of enterprise cloud computing pioneer Salesforce.com, IPfolio is a collaborative, flexible and easy-to-use tool for IP portfolio management through each lifecycle stage.

IPfolio customers around the globe range from mid- and late-stage startups with just a few patents to mid-sized private companies with a few hundred patents and trademarks, to large public companies with several thousand IP assets.
