LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (February 14, 2023) - USA Bobsled Skeleton (USABS) announced today a four-year partnership with Worldwide IP Solutions (WIPS).
Worldwide IP Solutions provides management, protection, and enforcement of intellectual property around the world. As a leader in the industry, Worldwide IP Solutions is known for its commitment to integrity, customer service and staying abreast of international intellectual property law.
“WIPS is an official partner of the bobsled and skeleton teams and also will be individually sponsoring Lauren Brzozowski, bobsled pilot (driver), on her athletic journey for 2026. It is the time we take to identify needs in the community, to see great things happening and decide to join the cause that makes life full,” said John Underfer, President of Worldwide IP Solutions.
"It means the absolute world to see Worldwide IP Solutions join USA Bobsled Skeleton as an official sponsor,” Brzozowski shared. “I have had the honor to work directly with WIPS this season and it has been beyond amazing. I value creating an easier path for the next generation of sliders to chase their athletic dreams. I think Worldwide IP Solutions can help do just that which is why I'm excited to see how they make their mark on this wonderful sport we call bobsled."
“Lauren’s story and her quest to become a part of something bigger inspired me. I knew I wanted to be a part of her journey. She connected us with the USA Bobsled/Skeleton team, and sponsoring was the right fit for Worldwide IP Solutions.” Underfer added.
For Underfer and WIPS, involvement in the communities they do business is a deep part of the culture.
“We work to live, not live to work. I know it may sound cliché, but the company’s commitment to giving back is a large part of the pride I take in being a member of this team. Americans send athletes to the highest level of competition every four years, not the US government. Therefore, it is very important to me that Worldwide IP Solutions, as a US-based company, do our part to help out; and, we are blessed to have this honor.”
USABS is extremely grateful for the partnership as well; on top of supporting the team, WIPS will also serve as a great resource for protecting proprietary intellectual property within the organization.
“We are grateful for the partnership with Worldwide IP Solutions as we develop USA Bobsled/Skeleton’s intellectual property and continue to grow support for USA athletes. USABS is always looking to provide the team with a competitive advantage through innovative thinking. Worldwide IP Solutions will be critical in ensuring that our intellectual property is properly protected.” Aron McGuire, CEO of USA Bobsled Skeleton shared.
