Are you ready to begin licensing your IP? If so, you should have a concise IP Profile that provides all the key details about your intellectual property and the licensing opportunity.  The key word is concise.  Think of it like a resume.   The IP profile is an introduction to potential licensees, and they do not have or will take the time to read the entire history of your IP.

  • Background – Explain the basic benefits of the product.
  • Milestones – What milestones have already been reached by the product, including patent status, working prototypes, current sales activity and where the product is being sold or distributed.
  • History – A BRIEF history of the product, providing a short explanation of the companies or people involved.
  • Product  –  Details including additional functions and any market research that supports the licensing opportunity.  
  • Customers – Who are the customers and why they buy the product.
  • Licensing – General information about licensing the IP rights such as exclusivity, territories, etc.


Make sure the IP Profile looks professional and has the correct contact information including your name, telephone, email address and website. Be sure to add a page to your website titled Licensing or Available for Licensing.
