IN­TEL­LEC­TUAL prop­erty (IP) is a sil­ver bul­let that can guar­an­tee a start-up nearly 75 per cent more fund­ing than oth­ers in the same field, ac­cord­ing to Pa­ten­teur di­rec­tor Neal Schutte.

“Pro­tect­ing in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty can also halve the chance of go­ing bank­rupt and quadru­ple the chances of list­ing on the stock ex­change,” Mr Schutte said.

“It can po­si­tion a busi­ness as a leader in its field and make it at­trac­tive to in­vestors and share­hold­ers.”

Mr Schutte said the global fi­nan­cial cri­sis had left peo­ple poorer, but the good news was that the econ­omy was be­ing rein­vented.

“We’ve qui­etly slipped from the in­for­ma­tion age into the in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty age, cre­at­ing an econ­omy in­creas­ingly dom­i­nated by a whole new class of as­sets – in­tan­gi­ble as­sets and the in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty rights that pro­tect these as­sets,” Mr Schutte said.

“IP truly is a tool for busi­ness de­vel­op­ment, profit mul­ti­pli­ca­tion and wealth cre­ation, but it’s be­ing used sub-op­ti­mally by the vast ma­jor­ity of com­pa­nies and start-ups.

“Don’t get left be­hind – con­tact Pa­ten­teur to­day.”
