:: About Opta Enterprises C.I. Ltd

Opta Enterprises C.I. Ltd was established in 1997, spawned out of Opta Consulting Ltd (the first Opta company established in 1988), as a result of the first 'dotcom boom'. Opta Enterprises was created as a 'business incubator' initially focused on the dotcom opportunities introduced by Opta Consulting, which could benefit from Guernsey's off-shore economy.

Since 1997 Opta Enterprises has increased its breadth and depth of experience to include IP and business franchising. Today its primary interest and focus is on the identification, valuation, protection and commercial exploitation of high value IP with global potential.

Over the years Opta has work with a wide range of clients, from multi-national companies and organisations to individual artists and inventors. Our passion and consequent preference is working with start-ups and new product/service launches.
