Guy Proulx did not set out to form an Asian-based IP strategy and advising company. Instead, it appears that the IP world sought him.
With years of experience in the private equity and venture capital sectors, Guy had earned a reputation as an expert in advising start-up companies on how to leverage intellectual property to attract investors. Eventually, the investors also sought his assistance in valuing their companies' IP portfolios, determining where they were vulnerable, and advising and assisting them in acquiring and selling IP assets. A great deal of this work involved connecting companies with IP opportunities around the world.
Even back in 2004, Guy could tell that something special was happening in Asia. Singapore quickly emerged as a hub for IP and technology innovation. The demand for Guy's expertise in this market grew as clients from around the world sought an ally who understood this very complicated IP market. It became clear that there was a serious need for a full-service IP strategy company
one actually based in Asia vs. those claiming to do business there. Since no such company existed, he decided to launch his own. And Transpacific IP was born.
