Bpifrance, IP Strategy Diagnosis and valuation of intangible assets: Diag PI

The intellectual property strategy diagnosis and valuation of intangible assets offered by Bpifrance aims to support your company in the implementation of a relevant intellectual property strategy . It also allows managers to perform a valuation of their company, including its intangible assets (IP, technical data, know-how, etc.).

Before the entry of investors or the backing of your company, taking into account intangible assets is essential to obtain a fair, objective value of your business.

Diag PI consists of an analysis and consultancy service carried out by an expert in the protection and valuation of IP:

  • State of the project and identification of existing intangible assets, market assessment from the perspective of IP and its issues,
  • Recommendations in the launch of a new project.

The IP strategy and valuation diagnosis is intended for companies whose leaders plan to develop and structure their intangible assets (patents, designs and models, trademarks, software, data) even when the innovation project is only at the concept stage.

These specifications describe the services provided by an expert in the construction and protection of a portfolio of assets, as well as the valuation and exploitation of this portfolio.

Prior to submitting a request for an IP strategy diagnosis and valuation of intangible assets, the expert validates the relevance of such a diagnosis and its adequacy with the specifications defined by Bpifrance.

After this exchange, the expert establishes a commercial proposal which positions the company in its context and explains the issues to be addressed during the Diagnosis.

Brandon IP, Intellectual property attorneys, in partnership with Brandon Valorisation, is referenced as a Bpifrance expert for the realization of this type of service.
