For content creators

Investing in original quality content from the best European creators

Unlike most media industry investors who invest in media technology and platforms, IPR.VC is investing in media content.

IPR.VC invests in scalable cross media products, which can be licensed and transferred for other delivery channels and interfaces and which can be modified and licensed for new purposes. This is a huge, underserved market.

Traditionally, VCs have invested heavily in mediatech, distribution platforms and software. The value and investments in the media industry are moving fast toward content IPR (Intellectual Property Rights). We believe that the value of the target companies is in their product rights portfolio and the licensing and public viewing payments revenue. IPR.VC provides support to companies in the ownership and control of their Intellectual Properties.

The track records of IPR.VC’s management team in venture capital and media business include content creation, creative direction, business management, and investment management experience. For startups and content companies, IPR.VC management’s knowledge, skills, and attitude provide a relevant and helpful perspective.  IPR.VC is supporting companies’ ownership and control for their IP’s.

Please note that we are not investing in media platforms or mediatech. The following describes how we tell the difference:

investment instruments

In addition to investments in company equity, IPR.VC’s financial instruments allow investing in content IP equity (intellectual property).
Content equity investment may be preceded with a smaller development investment.

  1. In equity investments IPR.VC typically invests €0.5…5m per company in one or several funding rounds. IPR.VC prefers investing along other fund investors.
  2. Project finance instrument investments are typically €0.5…2m per case. Project finance is the preferred form of investment instrument for audiovisual content investments.
  3. In some cases IPR.VC will first make a smaller, €50k-100k investment for the content development prior to investing with the a Project finance instrument. It may be used, for example, for script writing, developing tasks, project planning, or piloting.
