Following university, Marie-Sophie spent 11 years as an IP Chargée d’Affaires at the French Patent Office, where she developed a global approach to IP (drafting of pre-analysis IP reports, implementing strategic analysis of innovation projects, hosting training days, and tutoring companies as part of an IP Master Class initiative). She also assisted many companies, in particular SME’s and start-ups, in the elaboration of an IP strategy adapted to their particular economic model, available funds and environment (collaborators, clients, competitors), in coordination with organizations specialized in accompanying innovative companies.
