IP Valuation for Investment Purposes
This high-tech firm had already received around 3 Million UK £ Pounds in seed funding, but was in need to attract further funding. Working on a game-changing technology with a wide range of applications, it owned a series of international patent applications.
Oxfirst was invited to undertake a valuation of the patent portfolio and provide a economic assessment of the patents. In doing so, Oxfirst aimed to facilitate the task of investing in early-stage technology firms, while at the same time helping patent owners get a better grasp how to put their intellectual property to work.
Oxfirst’s unique contribution was to put a monetary value on the IP and show how economics can be applied to value patents.
