This IP Patent Asset backed loan strategy is designed to provide innovative structured financing, in the form of patent backed loans to technology companies that elect to use their IP’s.

The fund aims to pursue the significant opportunity that we believe is created by the inability of traditional financing providers, such as equity investors and traditional lenders, to evaluate and monetize patents, resulting in decreasing capital availability for thousands of technology companies with valuable patents and patent applications (“IP Assets”).

The fund developed a unique and differentiated approach to lending to Technology companies. Leveraging the substantial patent monetization expertise of the team and proprietary patent analysis tools, the fund endeavors to provide financing to companies based on an assessment of the value of the IP Assets.
