“Up to 85% of a company’s value resides in intangibles (e.g., customer information, software code, databases, business models, brands, homegrown processes and employee expertise).”

— Baruch Lev, New York University

Monetize Intellectual AssetsIn the knowledge economy a large percentage of corporate wealth comprises value represented by intangible corporate intellectual assets.

 

However, to create value companies need to continually identify and exploit myriad types of corporate intellectual assets. Examples of dormant intellectual assets that can be monetized include: R&D investments not ending up in products and services, abandoned technology, products and other intangible assets acquired in mergers and acquisitions, innovative processes, systems and more.
