IP angel for startups

Credible IP protection makes a huge difference in the value of a high tech startup company. Nowadays one of the first questions asked from a startup by an investor or a potential aquirer is their IP situation. For a startup company organizing IP matters may become overwhelming and expensive when the focus is in getting products ready for market and finding funding.

With its excellent know-how on the high tech industry TLEpatent can help high tech startups to tackle their IP challenges. Unlike tradional patent agencies TLEpatent can come very close to your business and take a holistic responsibility of your IP issues. We like to call ourselves “a business angel on the IP front” i.e. “an IP angel”.
