Intellectual Property Considerations for Entrepreneurs & Startup Companies

Intellectual Property Considerations for Entrepreneurs and Startup Companies

  • Do you wish to protect your ideas and inventions?
  • What are the costs and timelines for achieving such protection?
  • How valuable is your intellectual property to you?

Small and large companies alike struggle with developing strategies for protecting their intellectual property. At the same time, investors would like to valuate and monetize a company’s intellectual property (IP), which is often the most valuable asset of a company. Protecting IP can be essential to obtaining venture capital funding or preventing competitors or foreign actors from illicitly making your product or using your identity. However, forming an IP strategy can be particularly difficult especially when trying to maintain a budget required to execute the strategy.

We can help you to develop strategies for protecting your technology by developing a specific IP strategy for your company so that you can effectively provide your company with a competitive advantage, by protecting a valuable asset so that your technology can’t be used without your permission.
