“We have been recognised as one of 48 companies in Asia and one of two Indian organisations that have put IP at the heart of our corporate strategy,” Wipro chief technology officer Anurag Srivastava said in a statement here.

The IP Business Congress Asia of the asset management, which addresses IP value creation, comprises decision-makers from major IP-owning firms, investors, aggregators, advisory and financial representatives.

“We will continue to drive momentum around IP in line with our customers’ changing business environment to ensure they take advantage of any shift in their markets,” Srivastava said.
