RCIPS are pleased to welcome Philip Hoekstra to the IP Team as a Principal IP Officer. He has an excellent and pretty unique background for the position as he has covered most of the bases required for a job in technology transfer. He has worked in a new product development, a firm of patent attorneys and has completed IP exams, a start-up high-tech business and a market research firm. This experience will really help him in managing the cases that he will be assigned from the UCT IP Portfolio.

Philip, a Chemical Engineer, has worked for Sans Fibres, Von Seidels Intellectual Property Attorneys, Optimal Energy and Frost & Sullivan. He is particularly passionate about business and innovation in African countries and visited Nigeria in 2012 as part of a market research project.
