IP Can Build or Destroy your Business. Don’t Just do IP, do MVIP™
Many companies do not have the resources or expertise to manage their “secret sauce” and intellectual property (IP) effectively, which can lead to missed opportunities, legal disputes, or significantly lower business valuations. In some cases, incorrect IP strategies can destroy years of hard work and investment.
We have created a founder-friendly service, MVIP™, that helps entrepreneurs and goes beyond your typical service providers. We specialize in IP project management - a sort of “fractionalized IP service” - that provides a range of benefits to businesses, including:
Expert business and IP guidance and advisory services: Our project management service is staffed by experienced professionals who understand the complexities of “business and IP together” and can assist in building a business and IP strategy as well as roadmap that can allow you to set priorities, on your terms, budget, and at your pace.
Efficient use of resources: By outsourcing IP management to a service provider, businesses can free up resources and focus on their core business activities. This is especially effective for companies where IP decision making is spread among multiple people (or business units) and where the founder/CEO is already overwhelmed. This approach is key as IP related decisions can be centralized and communicated to the company’s team members, in line with business strategy.
Comprehensive coverage: Our MVIP™ covers a wide range of technology and IP related issues, beyond patents and trademarks. It can include the management of confidential information, customer facing communications (i.e., website content, press-releases, government programs (i.e., SR&ED, patent boxes, tax credits, and other financial incentivization programs in Canada and elsewhere), competitive market analysis, amongst other services. Implementing MVIP™ helps companies educate and develop an IP and business process within the company and ultimately leads to a strong IP culture of understanding and awareness in every area of the business.
Customized solutions: Every business is unique, and our services allow us to provide customized solutions to meet the specific needs of each business, including for example: integrating with existing activities or providers such as law firms, accounting firms, incubators, or government agencies.
Reducing risk: By using MVIP™, businesses will be able to identify risks (i.e., technology, legal, business, regulatory, etc.) and other issues that can harm their reputation and potentially destroy years and millions of dollars of equity, and mitigate risk.
Overall, the MVIP™ service seeks to address IP and business issues early on, and become a valuable resource for startups and small businesses that want to save on resources, and maximize the value of their technology and IP assets.
