    IPR protection defends the value created during a startup’s journey

    1. Came up with a great idea
      If you have a unique hard tech innovation, don't publish any papers or disclose it in any public forums before you file a simple provisional patent.
    2. Found a co-founder
      Sign a founders' agreement to document the terms, when everyone is cooperative and optimistic.
    3. Thought of a great name
      Search if someone else is already using the name or even a phonetically similar name. Don't wait for a legal notice.
    4. Found the perfect .com name
      Reserve your domain and social media handles. Monitor if someone else registers a similar domain and prevent any future branding problems.
    5. Hired a Freelancer
      Have freelancers and employees sign an NDA and an IP Assignment agreement.
    6. Raised Angel funding
      Get your compliances in order. File your trademark and any other filings you might have missed.

      License your IP for use by partners and affiliates. Maintain your brand value by monitoring how they represent your company
