Patents, Trademarks, and Intellectual Property

Sree Gadde helps early-stage, high-growth companies develop a strategy to leverage their IP assets to grow business value.  Specifically, Sree helps companies understand how to build an IP strategy that augments their business strategy before they engage attorneys to acquire IP assets (and commit substantial funds to those assets)

Unsure of whether you should get a Patent, how to protect your business, or how to determine if an IP asset is worth the cost?  Sree helps companies understand the relationship between what differentiates their business from their competitors, to various types of IP assets, to building business value. 


As Executive Director of BlueTree Capital, Sree analyzes investment opportunities in addition to maintaining a network of both local and national investment funds.  Given this network, Sree helps companies understand what investors are looking for as well as connecting companies to funds that align with their business goals. 

Looking to raise money to help your company grow, but not sure where to start?  Sree works with companies to help develop their story about how they have gotten to where they are now, where they are going, and how additional capital will accelerate their trajectory.
