Components of a Patent and Invention Licensing Proposal

There is no one-size-fits-all template for a patent and invention licensing proposal. Proposal Kit templates can be customized as needed to fit any situation using the extensive chapter template library. Here are some key chapters typically included in this type of template. Use this template as your starting point and customize it as needed using the software included with each Proposal Pack or the Professional bundle.

Cover Letter

The Cover Letter serves as the introduction to your Patent and Invention Licensing Proposal. It should briefly introduce your company, state the purpose of the proposal, and highlight the benefits of licensing your patent or invention to the recipient. This sets the stage for the rest of the document.

Executive Summary

The Executive Summary provides a concise overview of the entire proposal. It includes key points such as the importance of the invention, the benefits of licensing it, and an outline of the financial and advantages. This section is crucial for capturing the reader's interest early on.


The Licensing chapter outlines the terms and conditions under which the patent or invention will be licensed. It details the scope of the license, duration, and any geographical or market restrictions. This section establishes the legal framework for the proposed agreement.


In the Innovativeness chapter, you describe what makes your invention or patent unique and groundbreaking. Highlight any novel features, technologies, or processes that set it apart from existing solutions. This helps to underscore the value and potential market impact of your invention.

Cost/Benefit Analysis

The Cost/Benefit Analysis chapter breaks down the financial aspects of the proposal. It compares the costs involved in licensing the invention against the anticipated benefits, such as increased revenue or market share. This analysis helps persuade the recipient that the investment is worthwhile.

Return on Investment

The Return on Investment (ROI) chapter provides detailed projections of the financial returns the recipient can expect from licensing your patent or invention. This includes estimates of revenue growth, cost savings, and other financial benefits. Demonstrating a strong ROI is key to winning over potential licensees.

Price Structure

In the Price Structure chapter, you outline the pricing details for the license. This includes the initial licensing fee, any ongoing royalty payments, and any tiered pricing structures based on usage or sales volumes. Clarity in pricing helps prevent misunderstandings and sets clear expectations.

Payment Schedule

The Payment Schedule chapter specifies when and how payments should be made. This includes initial payments, milestone payments, and any recurring fees. A well-defined payment schedule ensures both parties are aligned on financial commitments.

Company History

The Company History chapter provides background information about your company. This includes your mission, key achievements, and relevant experience. Highlighting your company's credibility and track record can build trust with the potential licensee.


In the Patents chapter, you list and describe the patents you hold that are relevant to the proposal. Include patent numbers, filing dates, and a brief description of each. This establishes the legal foundation and scope of your intellectual property.


The Rights chapter details the specific rights being granted under the licensing agreement. This includes exclusive or non-exclusive rights, sub-licensing rights, and any limitations. Clearly defining rights helps prevent future disputes.

Strategic Position

The Strategic Position chapter explains how licensing your patent or invention aligns with the recipient's business strategy and goals. Discuss how it fits into their market positioning, product line, or innovation plans. This helps demonstrate the value of the proposal.


In the Competitiveness chapter, you analyze the competitive landscape and position your invention relative to other solutions in the market. Highlight any competitive advantages your invention offers, such as superior performance, lower cost, or unique features. This reinforces the potential market success of your invention.
