Thomas J. Treutler, managing director of Tilleke & Gibbins’ Vietnam offices, was quoted in an Asia IP story on startups in the fintech sector.
Addressing the necessity of strong intellectual property to secure funding in a fiercely competitive market, Tom said, “A well-managed IP portfolio capturing all of a fintech startup’s competitive advantage will leverage such startup in seeking funding investment. The big ‘sharks,’ based on the IP portfolio, can predict and oversee whether a business is promising to thrive, and therefore make their decision to invest into such business or not.”
