Our Approach

We play the short...and the long game

We recognize IP has long term potential to benefit all stakeholders. We encourage engagement earlier than a typical VC at the critical time when research is being formulated. We start early to protect the research and IP, and to identify unlimited "blue sky" potential. This timing coincides with SBIR and grant stage.

 

We remain involved for the full 20-year lifecycle of the IP and beyond. Markets and objectives change - it's important to constantly monitor the health of the portfolio against market forces as well as take advantage of opportunities in a changing landscape.
