Use Your Patents as Collateral to Finance Your Startup
BlueIron invests in startup companies with great IP and great growth potential.
Our investment model: Investment Grade Patents (TM)
What Makes Us Different?
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.
How Much Do We Invest?
We invest $50-100K initially to finance a patent or two, and grow the investment to $500K+ as the company grows. The investment mechanism is a convertible note line of credit, where advances against the line are used to finance individual patent families.
We also provide $2-5M loans using patents as collateral for revenue-generating startups.
Please note that we do NOT provide financing for national phase entry of PCT applications.
Is BlueIron a Good Fit?
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.
Why get patents if you cannot enforce them? Think again.
Patents as Collateral for a Loan.
You have valuable IP assets, so use them to fund your company.
