BlueIron IP – Financing Patents

BlueIron IP finances patents for companies where the cost of capital is high.

Your capital is very expensive as a startup, and needs to be used to develop prototypes, marketing, building inventory, fulfilling sales, and general expenses. When capital is expensive, it makes much more sense to rent rather than buy.

BlueIron IP gives you full control of your patent assets so you can keep competitors out of your marketplace, but the financing arrangement manages your expenses. Your patent expenses are fixed, smooth, and predictable, so that IP is a manageable budget item.

BlueIron’s financing arrangement is similar to a commercial lease-back arrangement, where you have a buy-back option that can be exercised at any time, yet BlueIron is providing the capital for obtaining and managing your patent portfolio.

The Net Present Value of BlueIron’s financing can be less than the up front cost of paying for a patent, especially when your cost of capital exceeds 10%.

A huge side benefit to using BlueIron: professional portfolio management that has a vested interest in the *business value* of your patents.
