Good patents make your company more valuable.
A well-crafted and curated patent portfolio has patents that make your company much more valuable to an acquirer. When curating a portfolio, BlueIron often targets potential acquirers.
We look for where the market will move, how competitors tend to operate, and target inventions that will likely be useful to a competitor or acquirer.
A well curated patent portfolio should be a roadmap for how a marketplace will develop, and that roadmap should include competitors and other companies entering the market at higher price points, lower price points, or addressing portions of the market that your company may have little or no ability to conquer.
Your patent portfolio gives an acquirer a distinct competitive advantage across the entire marketplace, which may be much more valuable than your team, your product, and your customer base.
