Introduction to Metayage

Metayage IP was founded in 2006, with the vision to bridge gaps between ideas and their implementation. Metayage is a French word for the cultivation of land for a landowner by a farmer who receives a proportion of the produce. Metayage IP builds a mutually beneficial relationship with our clients to cultivate and maximize their Intellectual asset value.  We have nurtured IP assets across multiple rounds of funding to harvest successful exits. Like farmers in the Metayage system, we have cultivated ideas at the seed stage which have yielded granted patents in multiple countries.
