Problem: The investment company declined the investment as trademark protection is missing despite its otherwise good conditions. They also used the lack of protection in another negotiation and got same amount of shares in an investment but with less money invested.
We have also seen cases where the investment goes back to the seller if the trademark application doesn’t get approved and registered.
Solution: Make sure that you have applied for your trademark before you set up the first meeting with investment company. This gives you an advantage in the negotiations.
