Stage 3: Preparing your plan
Market research: check. IP strategy: check. Welcome to the ‘valley of death’ – the lethal gap between innovation and income, haunted by failed entrepreneurs.
Your best plan might be to sell or license your IP. Perhaps you should commercialise your IP within an existing entity, create a spin-off, or establish a start-up. Alternatively, your brightest future may lie in a merger or acquisition, or a joint venture.
