Business Model for Corporations
Corporations now realize the hidden asset value of their Intellectual Property portfolio. The patent boom of the last 10 years, which saw the generation of over 1 million patents, is not only a reflection of creativity but also a realization of the need to protect inventions.
This explosion of patenting activity stands out when one considers that the USPTO issued its 6 millionth patent in late 1999. However, while corporations have generated so much activity they are now focussing on the organization of their IP portfolio from the standpoint of value extraction.
Typical corporate IP organizational structures reflect the legal and administrative role that has been the legacy of this patent boom. Non-typical, emerging and sophisticated companies are realizing that by focusing on leveraging their IP folios, they can generate revenues, or gain equity upside through spinouts or licensing.
Acorn offers corporations a value extraction channel for the Intellectual Property assets that have value outside of their industry, which have heretofore been neglected. Acorn’s philosophy is that Corporations do not have bandwidth or resources to focus on this opportunity, and we have designed our engagement process to be minimally disruptive to companies that wish to explore their IP value extraction options.
Benefits of working with Acorn:
• We will invest in adopting your technologies for other markets.
• We will screen and assess your portfolio for residual and potential value.
• You will receive value for intellectual assets that otherwise may lie dormant.
