Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
yet2.com, the global Open Innovation services company, announces its newest service offering, an intensive, strategic scouting service package — the yet2Ventures Consortium. An intimate client engagement model, the yet2Ventures Consortium accelerates the process of connecting interesting technologies from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) from around the world to market opportunities and technology needs of yet2.com’s corporate Consortium members.
yet2.com works closely with cutting-edge companies and technologies beyond the reach of most clients, in countries such as Russia, China, India, Korea, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, Mexico, and Turkey, as well as in Japan, the US, and the EU.
Corporate clients benefit from yet2.com’s deep network of affiliate relationships, guaranteeing a steady stream of introductions to disruptive startups and small companies located around the world — screened to meet corporate client strategic interests and presented with clear value propositions. SMEs benefit from yet2.com’s expertise in providing technology validation and assessment, suggestions on applications, and the potential to find commercialization opportunities or access to funding.
The service is responding to client requests for more customized, strategic scouting, and to improve client access to and interaction with SMEs, thus helping the strategic impact of Open Innovation for the yet2.com clients.
The new yet2Ventures Consortium harnesses the more than 5000 new technology companies yet2.com reviews each year, aggressively filtering them down to the small subset of truly disruptive opportunities. The yet2.com team then utilizes over a dozen years of technology transfer experience to assist its clients in moving toward partnerships with the disruptive companies. The Consortium also includes networking and learning discussions between peer Consortium members, data sharing on technology trends, and access to yet2.com’s venture capital partner company.
“Thirteen years into our business, we have built a worldwide network and unique expertise that lets us step up our technology scouting to an entirely new level,” says Tim Bernstein, yet2.com Chief Operating Officer. “We have enjoyed years of growth in the proprietary flow of these high-trajectory growth technologies and can now offer this premium level of service delivery. In addition, our clients have directed us to bundle-in some aspects of a ‘private club’ for discourse and interaction with worldwide peers. This ‘soft side’ of the service is one of the more intriguing dimensions.”

The company utilizes its broad global network of affiliates, its 130,000+ technology marketplace users, and its offices in North America, Europe, and Asia to scout cutting-edge companies and technologies beyond the reach of most clients. yet2.com is proud of its deep client relationships, providing customized deal flow opportunities and hands-on technology transfer assistance in the areas of technology search, monetization, Open Innovation portal management, and patent-buying.
