EMBRACING THE NEW IP REALITY

The Intellectual property (IP) market went through major changes over the last few years. Traditionnal IP approaches are becoming obsolete such that new value creation strategies and new monetization models are now emerging.

IP assets to attract funding

In a tech startup, it is often the value of the IP assests that the investor finances or the business partner relies upon. The investors need to be confident that it is «real».

The integrated approach

Emerging sectors such as the Cloud, Uberized services and the Internet of Things have put an emphasis on value creation strategies that leverage multiple forms of IP.

IP-driven deals

In a tech start-up, it is often, if not always, the value of the IP assests that the investor finances or the business partner relies upon for funding.

Workshop – Make it happen

Based on a market analysis, how to shape a Blue sky IP strategy: Bio, pharma/ Fintech, Internet of Things / eCommerce, Uberized services
