06 _ FAQ

YOUR QUESTIONS, OUR ANSWERS

  • What type of investment opportunities do we offer?

    With us, investors have the opportunity to subscribe to yield-oriented investments in early-stage technologies within the framework of the legal requirements. This asset class has been one of the most successful ones in the world for decades.

  • What opportunities and risks do these investments entail?

    The early involvement in projects that address future-oriented markets and, due to their careful selection and patent protection, pose little risk, offer high opportunities with manageable risks.

     

    However, it is in the nature of companies which develop future technologies that it is often not predictable whenever the technology will prevail on the market. In contrast, there are chances of high returns. The MP3 technology of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft is a good example: Only after more than 20 years of development the technology yielded a return – but then in the billions.

     

    The target companies are primarily financed by equity (eliminates risk of debt), are suitable for subsidies, serve a (sometimes exponentially growing) future market and are protected by property rights, patents and licenses with a long lifespan. This also enables, if necessary, the realization of infringement opportunities (patent infringement claims) and grants the investor sustainability and best opportunities.

  • Wherefrom do we generate projects for our portfolio?

    Due to the reputation of the Patentpool Group and the permanent collaboration with the German Institute for Inventions e.V. and our numerous industrial partners, an almost inexhaustible deal flow persists. Most interesting inventions are presented to this network at an early stage. This allows for a top-class project selection that ideally harbors synergetic potential.

  • What security features characterize our projects?

    Our approach is designed to ensure the greatest possible risk minimization through a comprehensive package of security criteria. The key features include:

    • Comprehensive protection of property rights
    • Experienced management
    • Low overheads
    • Equity financing
    • Suitability for subsidies
    • Focus on future and growth markets
    • Possibility of a freeze strategy

07 _ Our Values

  • Long-term partnership: A close and above all long-term partnership with the innovators is an important prerequisite for us to be able to implement projects in the targeted manner.
  • Trust & security: The trust of our partners is important to us. We are very careful to act transparently and in the interest of our partners, as well as to minimize risks and create security.
  • Sustainability: Future-oriented, sustainable thinking and acting are prerequisites for the economic success of start-ups. Therefore, we only take on projects that meet these requirements and have been assessed by our experts as ethically, morally and ecologically justifiable.
