Supporting High Growth Organisations
Digital organisations are thriving in the fourth industrial revolution, with exponential growth opportunities and risks that require better decision-making. Whether your organisation is a start-up with ambition to raise funding, a scale-up with sights on IPO, or you are an established business looking at M&A opportunities, navigating the path to growing enterprise value presents complex challenges.
One example of this complexity is the significant shift of organisational value in recent years, moving from tangible assets such as property, plant and equipment, to intangible assets including intellectual property (IP). This IP includes patents, trade secrets, know-how, copyrights, trademarks / brand, data rights, source code, regulatory rights, and domain names. Constant transformative change and innovation in organisations with sophisticated Intellectual Property requires important risk assessment, due diligence, and protection; and the ability to now leverage IP to raise funding can enable Digital organisations to tap into innovative sources of funding like IP-backed lending, without diluting equity.
