Attorney & Law
Patent attorneys who finance patents for startup companies.
What's your vision?
A book cover for my upcoming book "Investing in Patents: Everything a Startup Investor and Their CEOs Need to Know". There will be a website for the book at InvestingInPatents.com. Most likely, the website will be designed with the thematic elements from the book cover. The website for the financing business is blueironip.com, and I have Krajec.com for my patent practice. I will probably have a professional headshot taken for the rear cover of the book, but you can use a picture from the websites (or LinkedIn) as a placeholder for now. I want the BlueIron logo to be on the book somewhere. The size of the book is 6x9 inches, with a spine that will probably be 1/4-3/8inch. It will be published in paperback using Amazon's print-to-order system. Please select typography for the cover, both front and back.
General notes about the look and feel of the book: The contents of the book have a strong point of view that runs against the grain of every other patent book out there. I want the cover to reflect that strength and the insights that nobody is talking about. It needs to grab attention, but in a way that is professional, above-the-fray, and intelligent. Front of the cover: Main title: "Investing in Patents" Secondary title: "Everything Startup Investors and CEOs Need To Know" Rear cover: Headshot of author (get from Krajec.com or LinkedIn profile) An ISBN number, barcode, and price like most books. The book description and three or four quotes from reviewers. The book description: The patent system is broken and a waste of money for a startup. Or is it? Startups can get huge amount of value from the patent system *when they use it correctly*. The failures come from patenting the wrong thing, not understanding the pitfalls of the attorney/client relationship, and not doing the right due diligence before filing their patent. Investing In Patents walks you through the nuanced and poorly understood world of patents from a business perspective: what do you need to know to successfully navigate the patent process and waste your precious money and time.
