For investment firms, MGP provides assessments of new technologies, commercialization strategies, market potential, and technology valuations as part of the due diligence process for potential investment opportunities. We conduct these assessments for both early/seed stage companies as well as more mature, established companies contemplating introduction of a product based on new technology.
With our combination of deep and broad technical knowledge, wide industry experience, and business strategy background, MGP can effectively evaluate the risks associated with the development and market launch of new technologies as well as the strengths and weaknesses of a company’s strategy, intellectual property position, and management, as well as providing guidance on potential modifications to the strategy based on this analysis.
For client companies which are commercializing new technologies, MGP can assist with developing a company strategy that will integrate the new products into the overall company operations. MGP’s consultants assist with assessment of the technology’s commercial potential, identification and detailed evaluation of potential markets, development of launch plans, and strategies for protection of intellectual property (patents, copyrights, trademarks). We also work with client companies to determine the funding needs for the commercialization and to identify and pursue potential sources for the required project funds including utilizing current cash flow from operations, SBIR/STTR grants, commercial and non-traditional loans, and outside equity investments.
