Prior to making an investment in a start-up, investors look to ensure that the team, product, and market aspects are all strong. They then carry out due diligence to expose and plan for potential risks. These usually include financial and legal risks, but more and more investors are focusing on intellectual property too.  

PatSnap teamed up with Jon Calvert, to discuss what aspects should be considered when beginning due diligence and how a rigorous approach can secure a greater likelihood of realising substantial investment returns.
