Vital Program Funding Details

Springboard’s Atlantic IP Advantage Program provides IP strategy support for start-ups

There are two categories of support.
Funding is available for:

IP Strategy Development:

  • The IP Strategy Development Program puts start-ups in touch with IP professionals who can help them develop an executable strategy. This will ensure that start-ups have a comprehensive understanding of the domain they are pursuing and help tailor their IP strategy to their business model. Funding is available for 90% of costs up to $50,000. It is paid directly to IP service providers.
Here is how it works:
    • Eligibility is limited to start-ups that have attended awareness events
    • Start-ups work with Springboard Atlantic IP Advantage teams to develop applications
    • Award amounts are 90% of costs up to $50,000

IP Strategy Implementation:

  • The IP Strategy Implementation Program introduces start-ups to experts who can assist with executing IP strategies. These experts provide coaching and advice to integrate IP protection into business operations, and organizational culture. They also help with IP filings. Funding is available for 90% of costs up to $25,000 and is paid directly to IP service providers.
