English abstract:
A financial patent valuation is only as good as the estima-
tions behind it. For start-up companies and young entrepre-
neurs in particular, patents usually play a major role in finding
possible investors to finance the future commercialisation of
the innovative product covered by the patent. At the same
time, investors need to economically valuate the potential of
the patent by using an easily and quickly adaptable method, in
order to make the right decisions for their investments. The
new valuation method presented here is specially customised
for patents in start-up companies or for patents owned by en-
trepreneurs; it provides an easy calculation method combined
with a qualitative valuation method, to be applied both to the
patent itself and to its future commercialisation in possible
markets. In four steps (combined with provided templates),
the patents can be financially valuated, with comparatively
little effort and low costs.
