Berlin-based Startup Ascribe manages valuable digital creations. Artists, designers, and creative workers can share easily on the internet, but keeping it as “theirs” with proper attribution or getting fairly compensated has proven difficult. It doesn’t have to be about monetization, it can simply be about attribution. Ascribe want to give everyone the power to own and control their intellectual property in the digital age. The company was founded in 2014 by Masha McConaghy, Trent McConaghy and Bruce Pon. The ascribe team has built over a dozen companies and has decades of experience in technology, art, law, and finance. They are based in Berlin, the city that best represents the intersection of new media art & tech.
