IP consulting for start-ups

TLB with new offer: IP consulting for start-ups

Patents and IP, that is, intellectual property, are not generally among a company founder’s core competencies. Most founders build their start-ups and companies on an original business idea and internal expertise.

However, IP is part of the central core of any successful strategy of a technology-oriented company. IP and patents cannot protect the business idea, but in the best case the technology that underlies the business idea, and thus the core of the future company. In addition, IP documents the company’s technology leadership. That’s why founders need a sound IP strategy from the very beginning.

Effective immediately, TLB GmbH provides IP advising for founders and start-ups in the deep tech sector. TLB’s new service includes a free initial consultation, an extensive analysis of IP rights, and the formulation of an IP strategy for technologically oriented companies in the establishment phase.

In particular cases, it can also be important for technology-oriented companies – and even critical to their survival — to be familiar with the patent-legal environment of their planned company. Therefore, TLB offers an analysis of the special technology field, which provides the founders with an initial overview of the IP situation for their company in the context of third-party patents.

A sophisticated patent strategy is also essential when it comes to investors’ gains. Intellectual property increases the company's value and often paves the way for venture capital participation. TLB GmbH also assists companies and start-ups with the further development of the company and handles the protection of intellectual property and expertise in the upscaling process. This way, young entrepreneurs keep their heads clear for their original tasks at the company, i.e. product development and customer acquisition.
