How We Work

What Makes Us Different?

We have skin in the game.

Our success is based on your success.

Our financing program is non-dilutive.

If we invest, you know the IP has value.

Who Gets Our Investment?

Startup companies where patents and intellectual property can make a big difference.  Most patents are worthless, but a carefully, intentionally developed patent portfolio can be the difference between controlling your destiny and being roadkill on the entrepreneur highway.

IP Backed Loans

We provide loans to startup and growth-stage companies.

Generally, this means revenue-generating companies who have excellent IP protection.

Is BlueIron a Good Fit for Your Startup?

The best way to get our attention is through a warm introduction from someone who knows us. Please be prepared to share your pitch deck and issued/published patent applications, and also to talk about your IP protection strategies.  If both of us want to dig in deeper, we are happy to sign an NDA to discuss your inventions in detail.
