We are innovators and inventors ourselves.
We advise innovators ranging from large publicly traded companies to early stage startups and to universities on the management of their IP portfolios. It is always the case that innovators are not only competing against others in the field but also have to overcome shortage of time, staff, and capital. For most of these companies, a thoughtful and systematic architecting of their IP portfolio is lower priority than meeting deadlines, getting customers, or raising money – until the company actually needs its IP portfolio to fulfill its purpose as a defensive or strategic asset, which is often too late to start thinking about IP.
At Armada we are entrepreneurs, technology developers, and innovators ourselves. We understand the challenges the innovators have to face. By providing expert advice and IP portfolio development experience, we enable innovators to focus on innovating while being assured that the IP portfolio is being planned and built in lock-step, and that the portfolio will be ready when the company needs to rely on it to defend its products or to rely on it as a strategic corporate asset.
Our team works with a client company in the capturing, prioritizing, and protecting of intellectual property. We devise a forward-looking IP strategy and work with the company to steer the IP portfolio to the desired future state.
In those situations when a company’s business and products are heavily dependent on proprietary know-how and intellectual property, and when the company is in need to financing, we may be able to offer financing as an additional option. Even for those companies that are well capitalized, financing based on their IP portfolio is an attractive option. Financing can take the form of equity or credit financing, or somewhere in-between.
