    "Intellectual Property is not a necessary evil, but of great value for every SME. Convincing entrepreneurs of this is my passion."

    A dedicated IP-consultant, but above all a born entrepreneur. Anne Laarman thinks along with clients about the innovative strength of an invention and the commercial use of a product or brand in the market. In a society where everything can be copied, using intellectual property, she offers entrepreneurs something to protect the essence of their business and even takes it to a higher level, where possible.

    Anne's strengths lie in creating a good mix of IP-tools, which keep an entrepreneur ahead of his competitors. Anne considers the contact with the entrepreneurs themselves the best aspect of the profession. And then there’s the great pleasure when indeed she is able to find another good mix of IP-tools, to keep an entrepreneur ahead of his competitors. Entrepreneurs are courageous, thinking of opportunities and being headstrong is just part of that. Her passion lies in convincing these entrepreneurs that intellectual property is not a necessary evil, but a great value!

    Anne likes to spend her spare time outside. Hiking, swimming, cooking, as long as it is outside!
