Today, we’re excited to announce that Brainbase Assist is now the first and only licensing management platform you can use for free forever up to $100,000 per year in generated royalties.

Quick Refresh — What is Brainbase Assist?

Assist helps companies (brands, licensees and agencies) manage any IP licensing, partnership or sponsorship agreement.

The platform helps track legal contracts, IP rights, sales and royalty revenue, product and marketing approvals, your deal pipeline, store brand files and provides predictive analytics on all of your important metrics. It also integrates with the apps you love, including Slack, Hubspot, Salesforce, Pipedrive, Microsoft Dynamics, SAP and more.

Assist is your brand’s command center.

Why did we do this?

Brainbase’s mission is the make the intellectual property industry more open, efficient and accessible — including licensing. As a startup ourselves, we love supporting small businesses and we love seeing the underdogs succeed.

We also noticed that all of our competitors’ pricing models were not tailored for startups and small businesses (and still are not).

Until today, there was not a single IP licensing management product that you could use for free. We wanted to change that.

Brainbase Assist Startup Plan — What’s Included?

In practice, $100,000 per year in generated royalties is roughly equal to your first 1–10 licensing deals, depending on size, which is perfect for growing companies. Our Startup Plan also includes unlimited users, properties, contracts and products.

Basically, if you’re just getting started, everything you need to manage your IP licensing business is free and unlimited!

We hope this is a small but important step in helping provide better technology infrastructure to companies who want to start licensing, whether you’re a DTC brand, an emerging fashion designer or a new toy company.
