WIPO Global Awards 2023

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can now apply for the WIPO 2023 Global Awards.

The awards recognise companies that use IP-backed innovation and creativity in an exceptional manner to achieve business goals and improve society.

Up to seven winners will be selected form a shortlist of 20 nominees by an independent jury. The winners will receive a tailored 1:1 mentoring package and will be able to attend a ceremony at WIPO in Geneva during the General Assembly in July.

WIPO Director General Daren Tang said: “Our hope is that in recognizing the IP-centred achievements of SMEs, we will encourage greater numbers of businesses and entrepreneurs to use IP strategically in taking their ideas to market.”

In 2022, in the first edition of the WIPO Global Awards, five firms were recognised for their achievements.

In the future, other categories such as women and youth will be added.

SMEs can nominate themselves for the 2023 awards. Full details are on WIPO’s website here.
