Finance using IP

The Intellectual Property Office has developed a useful toolkit for IP finance

The Intellectual Property Office has developed an IP Finance Toolkit

The toolkit includes:

  • templates and guidance to help businesses accurately identify and describe their IP assets in a way that prepares them for finance applications and supports the decision-making of a potential lender
  • guidance on developing an effective IP strategy, commercialisation of IP and effective due diligence processes
  • improved guidance on finance options for IP-rich businesses and
  • a glossary of accepted definitions to be used when describing and valuing IP.

Section 5, Funding Available for IP-Rich Businesses, describes the type of funding, including funds and grants, that is available for these assets.
