Microbiome and IP – How to Build a Commercially Relevant Patent Portfolio

For any Microbiome Innovator, there are many combinations of reasons to consider building an IP Portfolio: to protect a monopoly of sales for your product or service, to enhance valuation of your company for sale, to enhance your bargaining position with a collaborator or competitor, or to form part of the package designed to attract investors. No matter the reason, or combinations of reasons, a coherent IP strategy that recognises the specific timelines and commercial goals of your company is vital. Using the International IP systems to protect many of the innovations in the microbiome field has very specific challenges; adding another burden to the job of creating of an appropriate IP strategy.
