This two-part series explores the fundamentals of financial modeling and valuation involving startups and emerging technologies, and how to leverage your intellectual property (IP)portfolio for funding and growth. Part 1 in the series, Telling Your Story with Numbers: Building a Fundable Financial Model, lays the foundation for the creation of a balanced, realistic and fundable financial model, while highlighting some of the pitfalls to avoid when presenting your financial plan to investors. Part 2 in the series, Monetizing Innovation: Leveraging Intellectual Property for Funding and Growth, explores the interaction between IP assets and corporate value, and how to manage your IP portfolio to support funding and growth.

Efrat Kasznik, President of Foresight Valuation Group, Lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and Chair of the High Tech Sector of the Licensing Executives Society (USA-Canada), will share insights from her 25 years of experience as an IP valuation and strategy expert, as well as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, CFO, investor and advisor. Throughout her career, Efrat has advised hundreds of companies of all sizes and across a wide range of industries, on how to extract value from innovation.

Part 2 - Monetizing Innovation: Leveraging Intellectual Property for Funding and Growth

Want to leverage your intellectual property (IP) for fundraising and exit? Want to become a Unicorn but not sure how your IP portfolio can support your valuation and growth? IP assets are the most valuable assets for high-tech startups, and yet companies are often struggling with how to manage and grow these assets so they adequately protect their core ideas and products, while at the same time increase corporate value and gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.

This is not a legal session, but rather a session exploring the intersection of IP management and corporate value, and is based on the curriculum of Ms. Kasznik’s MBA class at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Some of the topics that will be covered include:

  • How to create an IP portfolio that will increase your startup valuation
  • How to leverage your IP assets for funding

  • What are the types of IP value that investors are looking for

  • What are the common valuation methods for valuing IP

  • What are some of the mistakes to avoid when managing an IP portfolio for startup growth

  • How does IP impact Unicorn valuations
