You can count on Rushlight Ventures to maximize the value of your intellectual property (IP).

Rushlight Ventures is a leading venture studio that specializes in the monetization of defense and dual-use intellectual property created by small and mid-sized businesses conducting federally sponsored research.

We are both “IP type” and “monetization path” agnostic. We can pursue value creation from your IP via licenses, asset sales, startups, joint ventures, M&A, or internal business units. We work with IP of all varieties, including products, patents, trade secrets, proprietary relationships, and know-how.

At Rushlight Ventures, we provide a range of consulting and support services, including:

  • Licensing
  • Asset sales
  • Joint ventures
  • Startup and spin-out creation
  • Commercialization planning and TABA support

Why is Rushlight Ventures the right fit for you?

Our team has deep knowledge and expertise in the defense and aerospace industries as well as in a variety of commercial markets.
We work closely with our clients to understand their unique needs and develop tailored solutions that meet their specific requirements, including the sometimes-sensitive nature of their IP.

We don’t just tell you what you should do—we help do it.
You will never just get a binder or a report or a recommendation from Rushlight Ventures. We jump in the trenches with you and help get it done.

We love “hard tech,” the IP related to physical objects and tangible products.
While most of the venture and venture studio world is tilting increasingly toward virtual, we revel in the Newtonian 3D space we live in.

We never force a deal to hit our own timeline.
Because we are not tied to the time constraints of a venture fund, we can work on any timeline that is in your best interests.

We focus on de-risking market and go-to-market strategies.
We expect the technical de-risking to have largely been accomplished via federally sponsored RDT&E contracts or grants.
