New IP Services for Inventors and Investors Launched Today By Coller IP Management Monday 8 October 2007 PDF Print Coller IP Management Launches First One-Stop Shop for IP - New Services to Help Inventors, Businesses and Investors Finance and Realise the Real Value of their Intellectual Capital Organisations in all sectors now have access, for the first time, to a complete range of intellectual property services under one roof. The new services enable organisations at any stage of their development to work with a single specialist IP company to maximise the value of their intellectual capital. No longer do businesses have to spend time and money briefing several different suppliers to get their ideas to market. Jackie Maguire, CEO, Coller IP Management, said, "We've extended the business because companies are potentially missing out on the real value of their IC. Good ideas give the heart beat to many companies, but often flounder because the legal and commercialisation routes associated with IP develop independently. Companies are often sitting on buried treasure in the form of intellectual capital. We help them understand, protect and realise its value during the company’s full lifecycle." Legal Opinion and Valuation Coller IP Management, a UK company which incorporates the IP Solutions brand, helps organisations both protect and develop the commercial value of their intellectual property and today announced the launch of a legal opinion and valuation service aimed at helping businesses and investors understand the true value of their IP. The new legal opinion and valuation service is different from that offered by other companies. Coller IP Management will give firm independent opinions in jargon-free language as to the robustness of an invention, rather than the debated view offered by other organisations. The new service will help anyone who wants to evaluate the intellectual capital of a business, such as business owners wanting to sell or investors who need to make investment decisions. Coller IP Management's new valuation and legal opinion service gives organisations concrete opinions as to the worth and robustness of their intellectual property. "Other IP companies sit on the fence, whereas we are prepared to give a definitive view whether the IP has legs and is capable of getting to market." said Jackie Maguire. She added, "For the first time, companies can be confident that their invention can be used as a sound basis on which to develop the company, or write a business plan, which means that organisations without a robust offering will not waste time and money trying to develop something that is a non-starter – and, just as importantly, will understand the true value of what they have and how best to develop it. We are able to offer this unique service by having a team that understands and communicates the nuts and bolts of technology and IP as well as the lifeblood of business." For investors who need to understand the key IP issues within a business proposition, Coller IP Management provides objective views on the robustness and market attractiveness of the IP portfolio in question. “Our IP valuations support, M&A, IPO and licensing negotiations." The Invention House Coller IP Management is also launching an Invention House for inventors. The Invention House - or commercial nursery - will be a centre of IP expertise for the development of communication technologies. “We are seeking to support those organisations, both large and small, which are developing intellectual property related to communication technologies in their broadest sense, whether the core ideas are explicitly related to telecoms, or dealing with other novel applications of communications relevant to healthcare, automotive, diagnostics or other areas. We are keen on communication technologies that touch lifestyle issues” said Jackie Maguire. Coller IP Management is actively seeking companies and individuals that wish to develop their own IP in this area and require commercialisation support and direct access to boutique investors or venture capitalists.
