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.

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.

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.
