In conclusion, while some of the Unicorns analyzed in the study have embarked on the journey of creating a solid IP portfolio, as many as 61% of US Unicorns seem to have fallen behind. It is in the best interest of management and investors of these companies to examine their IP position and analyze their exposure, particularly if they are planning to enter new markets, are facing impending litigation or are approaching an exit event.
