Abstract

There is a need for both traditional and online lenders to appreciate the intellectual property assets held by small businesses. The intellectual property assets should be included in the analytics in assessing the overall health of a business seeking a loan or a line of credit for its new innovative product, idea, or vision. The Article ends with a brief conclusion that in order to maintain the United States’ innovative edge, attention to the access to financing by small businesses must be at the center of the discussion, and intellectual property must be recognized as part of that center.
