About our founders

Christopher Thierry

CEO & Founder


Christopher is a successful technology entrepreneur who has spent his life building new technology companies. It was during these years the concept of MVP (Minimum Viable Product) was well used, however in the rush to make products, there was a forgotten need to protect. In an effort to optimize investments at his company, Christopher devised a practical IP investment roadmap that matched the business needs at different stages. It was this practical approach that led to the creation of MVIP.
