If you want to raise capital from Intellectual Property (IP) currently being liquidated, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we share how you can make it happen.
First off, what is liquidated IP?
Liquidated IP refers to registered trademarks, patents or design assets that are being sold off by a liquidator on behalf of the original owner. Liquidated IP can be a great opportunity for you!
Why might you want to start your business with liquidated IP? The main reason is that it’s easier. You don’t have to worry about finding or coming up with your own trademark and brand identify, you’ve already done that by getting the rights to someone else’s trademark. Plus, if you acquire and start using a previously liquidated trademark, there may already be established reputation and goodwill in the market and possible channels you can use to sell your goods and/or services. For example, if you’re revitalising an old brand, those products may already have marketing and sales strategies in place.
Where does liquidated IP come from?
When a business is in financial trouble, an administrator or liquidator may be appointed. An administrator will attempt to rescue the business, moving it from a position of financial weakness to one where it is able to survive and continue trading. If a long-term future is not viable (if it is unable to pay existing debts, for example), a liquidator is appointed to ensure that creditors are able to reclaim their money. To achieve this aim, a liquidator may sell off a company’s assets, and its Intellectual Property may be more valuable than its physical assets.
Selling the IP of a company liquidation is a win-win situation for both liquidators and those wanting to get a fully registered trademark they can use as soon as it is assigned to them. Why not partner with RedCoin IP and see how simple the process really is?
