What’s your “IP Score” and how can you use it to develop your start-up’s IP strategy? Find out in this revealing program!

Once a patent application is filed and a start-up is created out of university technology, most TTOs and company founders assume their IP-related work is done. It’s a common mistake, and it’s an assumption that can ultimately kill the start-up.

Protecting the IP of your start-up is a paramount continuing challenge that you ignore at your peril, and developing a proactive IP strategy to mitigate risk is a critical imperative. Too many early-stage start-ups neglect to ask themselves what their long-term IP strategy will be on an ongoing basis. To grow and succeed, you must regularly evaluate:

  • How defensible is the technology?
  • What is the differentiating and novel aspect of the technology that we can support?
  • What are the key patents that lie close to the product or service that is being offered?
  • Who are the established and emerging companies within the given space?
  • How should the company go about identifying additional white space?
  • What are the key steps the company should take now that will maximize the long-term value creation associated with the business plan of the company? 

To provide guidance and answer the above questions, Anurag Bist, PhD, Founder and Chairman of Ashmar IP, has created a unique scoring system that dissects IP relevance, maturity and ease of implementation and helps you develop a workable long-term IP strategy.
