OUR MODEL

Finding, Funding, and Scaling
Breakthrough Innovations

IP capital

We provide capital for protecting, optimizing, and scaling a technology company's manufacturing operations and IP for use in making products with its breakthrough innovations, including in partnerships with existing manufacturers, with our investment secured by its assets and contracts.    

IP Royalty

We receive a percentage of a company's revenues to provide an ongoing cash yield and a percentage of a future company exit (IPO, sale) to buyout our IP royalty, for the potential of exponential growth in returns, leaving equity ownership and control in the hands of entrepreneurs.
