Team

The IPR.VC team comprises different backgrounds in media and investment communities

The IPR.VC team is comprised of different backgrounds in media and investment communities. The co-founders have been in business relationships with each other since the 1990s. The team is driven by the passion to make European content entrepreneurs benefit from the media industry disruption and to succeed in global markets.

IPR.VC is an interpreter and interface between creative companies and the financiers, and understands them both.

IPR.VC’s wide connections, presence, and credibility among the European audiovisual and game developers’ community brings great deal flow. Typically, creative entrepreneurs have little awareness of the existence of business angels and investors. IPR.VC is well known among the entrepreneurs.

The IPR.VC team has the special skills and knowledge needed for financiers to look beyond traditional financial services and discover more innovative financing solutions.

  1. Specialist legal knowledge
  2. Debt contracts of project-based financing
  3. Up-to-date knowledge on key artistic and content creation and production skills of individuals, projects, and developments
  4. Specialist knowledge on risk assessment based on experience in the sector;
  5. Specialist knowledge on cash-flow projection as there is often no average market data available.
