The IPO has developed an intellectual property (IP) finance toolkit.

The toolkit includes:

  • templates and guidance to help businesses accurately identify and describe their IP assets in a way that prepares them for finance applications and supports the decision making of a potential lender
  • guidance on developing an effective IP strategy, commercialisation of IP and effective due diligence processes
  • improved guidance on finance options for IP rich businesses
  • a glossary of accepted definitions to be used when describing and valuing IP.

Section 5 Funding Available for IP-Rich Businesses describes the type of funding including funds and grants that is available for these assets.
