Here is an excerpt of an interview with the Minesoft CEO talking about the Richmond Business Awards and being a member of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce:

Please could you briefly explain what your business does?
Minesoft is at the forefront of the Online Patent Information Industry, supplying products such as an online, global, searchable database of patent documents that have been filed all over the world. Our products are used every day by leading FTSE 100 type companies worldwide as well as hundreds of specialist Intellectual Property Law firms to discover in detail about patents that have been applied for or granted already in all areas of technology – providing a huge resource for science and technology research.

What does it mean to be a part of the Chamber of Commerce business community and the Richmond Business Awards?
Minesoft’s main office location is in Richmond, a beautiful place to live and work and although our clients are based worldwide, we like to feel part of our local business community as well as participating in international business forums. Richmond Chamber of Commerce is exceptionally active and vibrant and this gives us the opportunity to meet our own local suppliers as well.

Why did you sponsor the Best Website category?
Minesoft is and always has been an online business, we have had our own website since our first year of existence. These days, we have quite a few websites for our various products and we try to embrace aspects of new media as opportunities arise that fit our business model. Over 90% of our business is conducted outside the UK, so an online presence is vital to communicate more easily. Therefore, we feel a good website will help a company to expand their business and are proud to sponsor the Richmond Business Website Award for the third consecutive year.

Did you enjoy the Gala evening at the RFU last year and will you be there at the Awards presentation this year?
Minesoft had a table at the event and our staff thoroughly enjoyed it! I missed it in 2015 as I was abroad on business but am looking forward to this year’s event.
