About the job

Intellectual Property is an organization's most valuable asset. Tradespace empowers companies, universities, and government labs to unlock billions of dollars in trapped IP. Our customers have created over $100M in value using our AI-powered platform to more effectively develop, manage, and commercialize IP.

A high-growth startup backed by top investors in Silicon Valley and New York, Tradespace is re-shaping the way the world values and uses IP.
