Introduction

"Knowledge is power", the adage from Francis Bacon, the British philosopher of 16th-17th century, is more self-evident than ever before in its meaning in global information and commercial society of today. The Hong Kong Intellectual Property Exchange (HKIPX) offers you Midas touch to convert your "knowledge" into personal wealth. Inventions, literary and artistic works, trademarks and brands, collectively known as the wisdom of mankind, are indeed a huge "gold mine". Unfortunately, its value has been historically ignored or undervalued.

HKIPX has made ready a marketplace for IP holders to access capital markets through its experts with decades of experience in the industries of intellectual property, finance and capital markets. To do this, HKIPX is offering three major trading engines with different functionality to buyers and sellers of intellectual properties: 1) Intellectual Property Flea Market, 2) Financing Platform for Intellectual Property Project and 3) UIPR trading Engine. The following section highlights UIPR Trading Engine:
