Start by discovering how much intellectual property (IP) you own. With our tools, you simply ‘drag and drop’ to build up a profile that’s unique to you and securely held on our system. We take a broad view of IP, considering everything ‘intangible’ your business owns (not just patents and trade marks).

Since IP is the ‘currency’ of the knowledge economy, we think that every company ought to know what it's got in the bank. We've created the world’s only online IP valuation tool, called Sollomon®. It’s impartial, confidential and highly cost-effective. It's also quick, with an initial result obtainable instantly.

You’ll also want to know how to make your IP stronger. Once you have a profile, one more click will create an Appraise™ personalized action plan. This highlights risks, opportunities, and important things you need to know. Use it as an online checklist and revisit it as often as you like for a whole year.

If you want to explore licensing, start exporting, raise funding, value or sell a company, form partnerships, create spin-outs...
in fact, if you want to transact any kind of business with IP - start with us!

Sollomon® indicative valuation tool

A world first, Sollomon® provides a consistent, standardized, 'conversation starter' on IP value for any purpose. Based on the widely recognised and respected 'relief from royalty' method, it provides immediate results which are then moderated by the Inngot team.

Sollomon® was designed with specialist input from Grant Thornton UK LLP for any and all of the following:

  • Preparing your business for equity investment
  • Selling or licensing your IP, or knowledge-based products and services that contain it
  • Using your IP and intangibles as security for debt finance
  • Evaluating your exit options

Sollomon® is built on the Inngot profiling system, so as soon as you have identified your IP, you can get a good idea of what it's worth by entering the numbers from your business plan and some historical financials.

You'll get a report immediately - and our head office team will then check the contents and come back to you (usually within a day) with suggestions to help you get the most accurate result.

The Sollomon® valuation system is currently optimised for the UK, USA, Canada, Norway, Australia, New Zealand, India, Malaysia and Singapore and all accompanying currencies (contact us if you want to conduct a valuation but are based in another country).

We also offer a guide setting out the information you'll need to value your IP.

Appraise: your IP action plan

Our groundbreaking Appraise tool analyses the contents of your profile and
generates a customised interactive checklist, highlighting risks and opportunities
and providing you with essential information.

Appraise is our online IP strategy tool. It's an interactive action plan, personalised to your profile. Created by the Inngot team, it's based on over 50 years' combined, hands-on experience in managing and commercialising IP. Our feedback comes in three varieties:

Potential risks associated with your assets which may require your attention.
Tips on how to make your IP stronger or more commercially attractive.
Other information you need to know, to help you consider your options.

Whilst we know a lot about IP law, Inngot specialises in the commercial aspects. We won't write your patents or register your trade marks (there are lots of good firms who can do that). We focus on helping you work out what you need to do to reduce risk and maximise value.

The Appraise action plan is currently optimised for the UK. If you need something even more personalised, we can provide UK customers with an IP audit.
