US and Chinese domiciled online intellectual property platforms to collaborate to increase access of advanced manufacturing innovations between western and Chinese enterprises and entrepreneurs

"We will align well with the AutoHarvest Innovation Ecosystem to bring good opportunities to both members and enterprises through utilizing intellectual property" said Boon Xie, CEO of WTOIP

Two major intellectual property ecosystems have joined forces to accelerate the adoption of innovation between Chinese and Western organizations and inventors. The emergence of China as the world’s top patenting country is another strong indicator that tomorrow’s successful companies will have a China strategy and Chinese partners. Efficiently bridging the vast distance in geography and culture has been achieved by many multinationals that have established R&D centers, sales and manufacturing operations in China. Broadening the Chinese opportunity landscape to include entrepreneurs, SMEs and research institutes is a primary goal for AutoHarvest Foundation and WTOIP. A new bridge—facilitating the flow of innovation—is being built stretching from China to Motown and beyond for intellectual property and talent in transportation and advanced manufacturing. Four of the top recipients in 2014 of Chinese patents were car manufacturers.

“WTOIP was created to unify Chinese intellectual property developers and product innovators through an on and off line network offering a deep pool of partners, patents, branding and global markets,” said Boon Xie, CEO of WTOIP, “We have abundant IP resources which are over 600 thousand patents and 500 thousand trademarks for sale. We will align well with the AutoHarvest Innovation Ecosystem to bring good opportunities to both members and enterprises through utilizing intellectual property.”

WTOIP has offered access to its O2O (on and off line communities) for AutoHarvest to showcase selected member’s technology solutions and needs to Chinese product development and manufacturing entities. In addition, AutoHarvest will participate in a series of WTOIP conferences offering insights about the emerging China 2.0 mindset. WTOIP has joined AutoHarvest’s Innovation Hub to provide special reports highlighting opportunities in China. AutoHarvest and WTOIP are working to bring their respective memberships closer together on technology opportunities and provide resources to simplify the complex commercial mechanisms of IP transactions in China. AutoHarvest and WTOIP will participate in ITTN Technology Transfer Conference in Beijing on April 2015 and jointly hold an international IP forum titled “2015 International IP Monetization and Commercialization Forum” in Los Angeles in May 2015.

AutoHarvest operates an intellectual property e-collaboration marketplace, that offers direct access on a principal to principal basis between innovators and commercializers-- from grassroots inventors in the garage to corporate and government sized titans-- to commercially share technology ideas and resources. “AutoHarvest is delighted that WTOIP has become an active partner to do the noble work of building a trusted bridge and superhighway to China for entrepreneurs, SMEs and innovation organizations in automotive and advanced manufacturing.” said Jayson D. Pankin, AutoHarvest co-founder, president & CEO. The Chinese National Patent Development Strategy plans more growth by 2020 in seven strategic areas: biotechnology, high-end semiconductors and equipment manufacturing, broadband infrastructure, alternative energy and conservation and clean-energy vehicles.
