Intellectual Property (IP) is an invaluable business tool for a start-up, or an entrepreneur. It provides several advantages to kick-start one’s business. For most start-ups/entrepreneurs, IP is sometimes the only tool that can give them business/competitive advantage in the marketplace. By using the exclusivity offered by IP, a start-up can get a head start in business and generate revenues.

Having said that, a start-up cannot avail the said advantages by merely creating intellectual assets. An invention or creation of an entrepreneur has value only if it is properly protected and safeguarded. Unprotected IP is considered to be in the public domain, free for all to use, and economic strength, presence in the market, etc, supersede a start-up’s business future. In addition to protecting its Patents and other forms of IP, a start-up must also know how to use such Patents and other forms of IP for its business benefit.
