My name is Martti Mikkola. I have worked with IPR, innovations and advising SME´s since 1999 (Foundation for Finnish Innovations, Runar Bäckström Foundation, Helsinki University of Technology and TULI-project).
I have evaluated suitability for funding for thousands of inventions, business ideas and start-ups. I am familiar with evaluating possibilities for IPR protection and creating IPR strategies, as well and charting individual companies´ needs for IPR and designing the road map for further actions.
Before my career in IPR, I worked for 12 years in industry (Nokia-Robotics, Nokia-Maillefer and Nextrom). These companies made industrial robots and cable machinery. I managed projects for making fiber optic cable factories on three continents.
I hold a M.Sc. (Tech.).
