YOUR LICENSING IS  YOUR PRODUCT

Having the correct technology licensing structure and supporting contractual agreements are, very likely, the most critical aspect to ensuring the enterprise value you are creating for your technology-based business remains within your organization. Too many times, poorly-advised companies have found themselves with services, licensing and SaaS agreements that bleed value, force them to support outdated technologies without representative income, or, worse still, relinquish revenue opportunities and lose control of precious IP to a customer or a third-party.
