John Cronin, Managing Director and Chairman is the author of "Strategic Patent Valuation for Maximizing Potential Value". INTRO: Many inventors and companies wait until they have a granted patent in hand before finally asking themselves the question, "So now what?" From lean tech startups to Fortune 100 heavy hitters, patents are granted each week in the U.S. and abroad, raising questions to their owners like, "what exactly are the patents good for?", "how much are the patents worth?", and "how can any value be realized?" If you have invested time and money in your patents, these are undoubtably the right questions to ask. The answers may be found in patent valuation.

Do Investors Care About IP Anymore? When IP Is a Consideration in Devising Investment Strategies

It's been two decades since Intellectual Property (IP) and its development became a defining element in investment strategies for parties on both sides of the negotiation table. In the late 1990's, investors wanted their dot-com startup companies to have patents, as it would help the company appear innovative. Even after the dot-coms went bust, investors regarded IP as upside protection; meaning, if the company went under, the IP portion of the portfolio could keep the deal from being a complete loss. Investors, like Venture Capitalists (VCs), who got burned by multiple failed investment efforts, turned their interest towards start-up companies with a strong balance sheet versus those with no revenue potential. For example, if pre-investment research showed that the start-up had a Freedom to Operate (FTO), then IP became a more important consideration on an investor's check list.
