Inngot was founded in 2007 by information industry professional Martin Brassell FRSA and international finance law expert Professor Iwan Davies .

We're on a mission to help organisations everywhere unlock the commercial potential of their IP and intangibles. Our services solve the twin problems of asset identification and valuation that have made it difficult for companies to harness this vital source of value, normally absent from balance sheets.
We recognise that not all organisations are all that familiar with IP. That's why we've developed classification structures, tools and interfaces which address the language barrier and make it easy to get to grips with the subject. It's also why we are harnessing the power of the Internet to deliver them to you today.
