Mitigating the Invention Gap

Entering into licensing agreements enables your company's R&D efforts to move forward at a rapid pace.

What creates an Invention Gap?

In today’s fast-paced, high-tech world—where companies are entering new markets and building products that contain upwards of thousands of patented inventions—there is an inevitable Invention Gap™. This gap, the difference between the invention rights companies control and the IP assets they use, poses a risk and potentially substantial financial liability.
