Do you understand the true value of IP to your business?

IP is one of the key assets for SME’s and Start-Ups however it is often either overlooked due to high costs or a general lack of awareness in terms of its importance to the business. In practice IP can protect the export, import, sales, marketing and manufacturing of a product or service globally.

At Aalbun we work with many Start-Ups and SME’s by providing instant access to global IP experts, advice and services via our IP request tool, WorkZone.

Do you feel the cost of protecting your IP is out of reach?

As budgets are often very limited Aalbun will design a dedicated fixed-fee pricing mechanism based around short and long-term business goals. This unique pricing mechanism not only brings IP protection well within the reach of most budgets it will also provide predictability going forward.

The below highlights the key variables for an IP budget for start-ups and SME’s:

N = Number of inventions (IPR strategy needed to figure out what makes sense and how much is a good number)

M = Number of key territories (market entry plan/business plan is the key)

Therefore the amount of investment needed for protection:

I = N x M x c wherein the c is €5-15k depending on the territory.

If your business value is higher by sufficient multiplier it makes sense to protect.
