Why "Bishop Rock"?

Images and places are powerful. They can tell a story much more powerfully than mere words. At Bishop Rock, our story is one of seeing farther, of looking out past the horizon to see your critical IP relative to the market, but also to see your competitors, and the new entrants coming after your valuable assets. 


A lighthouse evokes that story that we want to tell -- the lonely sentinel on the lookout for danger ahead. Bishop Rock is a lighthouse perched on a tiny spit of rock about 28 miles to the southwest of Great Britain. It is the first danger for vessels making the transatlantic voyage from North America to the harbors of Britain. Since 1858, the Bishop Rock Lighthouse has stood over the dangerous waters of the North Atlantic, lighting the way to the safe harbors ahead.
