Patent Financing By BlueIron
BlueIron can finance the cost of getting your patent – we pay all your patent costs using a unique “lease-back” model.
BlueIron’s patent financing is designed for Seed, Angel, and Series A startup companies. Rather than pay for patents with the full up-front cost, financing frees up cash for operations, however, the biggest benefit of financing is BlueIron’s due diligence and research prior to patenting.
The Legal Structure is a Conventional Commercial Lease-Back.
Most Fortune 500 corporations structure their IP portfolios in separate holding companies for tax and other reasons.
You Always Have Full Control of Your Assets
Just like leasing a car, you have full CONTROL without having to pay the full price up front.
Because you have an exclusive license, you – and only you – decide how to use the patent assets. You can enforce, license, sublicense, cross license, or sell your business assets. BlueIron has no veto power and no say in how you run your business.
You Always Have a Buyout Option with a Predetermined Price
The buyout option is based on BlueIron’s investment in the asset, NOT a percentage of the patent value, revenue, or any other measure. Our job is to finance your patents, not become a tax on your success.
Our Due Diligence Ensures We Only Finance Good Ideas
Our due diligence reports are highly respected by investors.
BlueIron’s due diligence process not only evaluates patentability, but also enforcability, the economic advantage of the invention, its value to the startup’s market, as well as its value to competitors. Solid business value is REQUIRED before BlueIron can finance the invention.
BlueIron NEEDS You to be Successful
BlueIron is investing in your ability to execute at least as much as the quality of your idea.
The patents ONLY have value if you are successful in bringing a profitable product to market. If the product fails in the marketplace, the patents are likely worthless, which is our only collateral. BlueIron’s interests are perfectly aligned with your’s.
