After several years of offering our invention development program in the United States as well as several countries in Asia, we have now made these programs available in Canada. Just as we have seen in other countries around the world, there is great interest among Canadian inventors in collaborating on new inventions with Intellectual Ventures.
Intellectual Ventures launched its invention development program in 2007. We currently have offices in the United States, Australia, China, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, and Singapore. Each office is currently identifying promising local inventors and working with them to come up with new inventions in key technology areas. We are working with inventors at North American and Asian universities, public and private research institutes, as well as small and large companies.
Intellectual Ventures helps inventors identify valuable areas for new inventing, and when we are excited by a particular invention idea, we provide all necessary financial and administrative support to turn that idea into a patent application. Our invention development programs help bring needed capital to inventors, as well as their universities, research institutes, and companies. This capital can, in turn, be used to fund new and ongoing research or for technology licensing offices (TLOs) operating capital. We offer our large global network of inventors and institutions access to our own in-house experts in science and technology, invention valuation, as well as IP and patent law. Most importantly, our invention development programs help bring more of the world’s inventions to the global marketplace.
