Maaike Van Velzen

Maaike is currently a Partner at Deloitte Nederland

She is a business driven IP professional with focus on creating an international IP portfolio, IP scouting and acquisition and long term IP strategy. At Philips IP&S she was head of IP for Connected Care.

Over the past 10 years she had a variety of roles in Philips IP&S touching all aspects of IP including IP counseling, IP portfolio management, IP licensing, IP acquisition and IP enforcement. Throughout these assignments she has worked with all types of IP. This has strengthened her view that real value is created through clever selection of the appropriate IP type for a given business activity.

She is very interested in the role IP plays in a services and solution driven business. She leads the Philips IP activities in relation to artificial intelligence/ software based inventions and how IP can support growth of businesses in services and solutions in a healthcare ecosystem.

Over the years she initiated the integration of new tools and services into the IP organization, and she continuously scout for new companies/initiatives that can increase efficiency and add (quality of) services.

She enjoys working with multinational teams and gaining understanding of national business dynamics and the role IP plays in growth markets.
