IP Capital Advantages
Serving as partners, not just investors.
We help entrepreneurs and our venture capital partners build great companies in the following ways:
- Provide IP Capital to seed, early and growth stage companies in IP-rich industries in ways that adapt to the America Invents Act and leverage the high values placed on IP in the New IP Economy.
- Implement an IP engine, including a multi-year IP plan and a skilled in-house IP team, so the founding team can focus on delivering game-changing products and services.
- Enable emerging companies to retain their competitive edge through IP Ecosystem portfolios as they ‘pivot’ to identify the right technology direction and market(s).
- Greatly increase fundraising ability, exit potential and value, and de-risk venture investments by aligning the IP strategies of portfolio companies with those of larger companies.
- Build IP Ecosystem portfolios, much as larger companies do to reduce uncertainty over technology coverage in core markets and secure IP rights/value in future markets.
- Defend against competitive/IP threats by leveraging IP Ecosystem holdings and IP expertise across portfolio companies—using the strength in numbers.
- Offer access to Cote IP Services as the IP engine for all Cote Capital portfolio companies to build their IP Ecosystem portfolios and to defend against competitive/IP threats at costs far below industry standards.
