IP Group has developed its own proprietary methodology for systematically commercialising intellectual property and technology. The methodology consists of three core components – deal flow, business building and capital.
IP Group’s North East team works with key regional and national organisations to source best in class opportunities arising from within the North East and also works with partners to source opportunities which are seeking to relocate to the North East. We then use proprietary hypotheses based methodologies to assess these opportunities and decide which to progress. These techniques are also used to monitor, progress and shape the evolving strategy.
During the early stages of an opportunity’s development, members of the Group’s team work closely with its founders to shape its strategic direction until the business reaches a sufficient stage of maturity, and has the resources, to widen the leadership team.
IP Group uses its specialist early-stage in-house executive search consultancy, IP Exec, to recruit experienced and high calibre individuals to lead its developing businesses alongside founders. The Group has initiated two innovative programmes to accelerate company growth, working with CEOs and company boards to improve performance.
The Group can also provide operational, legal and business support, including company secretarial, to its companies with a view to minimising the most common administrative factors that can contribute to early stage company failure.
IP Group has an experienced management team with extensive contacts in industry, government, academia and finance together with strong in-house expertise in digital, life and physical sciences and in building high growth businesses.
IP Group’s extensive expertise in systematically identifying and commercialising intellectual property combined with its inside knowledge of both industry and finance have enabled the Group to create a formidable track record of consistently delivering excellent results for all of its stakeholders.
In addition to the North East Technology Fund IP Group manages a number of venture capital funds which, subject to investment guidelines, can provide further additional sources of capital. In addition, the Group works with a wide network of co-investors that can provide further capital alongside the Group and has a dedicated resource with an excellent track record in this area.
If your business fits our investment criteria we’d love to hear from you.
