Proven Success

The Numbers Don’t Lie

Since 2008 we have worked closely with clients, helping them identify and manage their intellectual property and how to best commercialise science outcomes.

In 2018, IP Active was born.  We decided it was time to change our name to something that reflects what we do.  We work with our clients to get their technology moving to achieve commercial success.

Our parent company, TechMAC was founded by Dallas Gibb in 2008 after spending 20 years working in agriculture, managing R&D and technology commercialisation.

With our first clients, we worked closely with them assessing IP management and reporting procedures, including IP Audits to identify risks in project management.  Our client base has expanded to include R&D corporations, Universities and private enterprise.
