Creating Assets from Intellectual Property

In this episode I talk with Jacob Aldridge from businessDEPOT about how he is helping small business owners to identify and develop products from their IP.

Over the past 12 years, more than 300 active growth businesses in Australia, the UK, and Asia-Pacific have worked with Jacob in his role as an international Business Coach, Partner and Advisor.

As Director of Advisory at businessDEPOT, Jacob Aldridge is working one-on-one with SME businesses and directors, while also leading the development of the Strategic Advisory services across Workshops, Group Programs, and Online business guidance.
