We recognize the critical role entrepreneurs play in pushing forward the boundaries of innovation and the value they and their investors bestow on society in driving the creation of new industries and jobs.
Our IP Capital model rewards entrepreneurs for their role in innovation—great ideas—in addition to their ability to execute in bringing a game changing product or service to market. We invest in emerging companies to increase exit potential and value through IP Ecosystem portfolios and by bringing a dedicated “in-house” IP team to each emerging company.
With backgrounds in technology, law, operations, venture capital and economics, our team is uniquely positioned to guide technology companies at all stages of growth through today’s maze of IP issues. Our IP capital and IP expertise complements the traditional venture capital approach. Securing IP rights to a technology with the right strategy has huge value for emerging companies.
Founded by Robert Cote, a noted patent attorney who has spent two decades protecting the IP rights of technology companies around the globe, Cote Capital targets investments in seed, early, and growth stage companies in high-growth IP markets. The firm has offices in New York and Palo Alto.
