Emil Pot

European patent attorney
I am a European patent attorney with 20 years of experience in life sciences and innovation in general, both at research institutes and in trade and industry.


  • Biotechnology

Since November 2015, I have been responsible for business development at our new office in Ghent, where my focus is on developing effective IP strategies for innovative SME and start-up businesses.

My experience is in commercializing innovative ideas, ranging from negotiating and drafting licence and R&D agreements to preparing business plans and advising start-ups and innovative companies on their IP strategies. As a co-founder of ActoGeniX NV, I was actively involved in various financing rounds, business development and building an extensive and successful IP portfolio until the company was successfully sold to US company Intrexon Corporation in 2015.


  • Master of Law (LL.M). Groningen University
