Boulder, CO (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
Boulder, CO April 22, 2013 – Collective IP, Inc., the global leader in innovation intelligence, announced today the launch of CollectiveIP.com, a new approach to search for technology transfer asset identification. The Collective IP search engine gives business development professionals access to millions of technologies and inventors from all around the world, comprising technology listings from over 1,000 sources of innovation – including universities, research institutes, hospitals, government labs, foundations, associations, agencies and patent offices.
Given the time decay of patent-based assets, industry perpetually searches for novel technology licensing and acquisition opportunities. Technology transfer organizations primarily feature their available opportunities to the world through individually developed websites, making the process of asset identification time consuming, inefficient and expensive for both technology transfer offices and those searching for innovation. Collective IP addresses these challenges by automating the aggregation of the world’s licensable technologies and featuring them all in one place.
In contrast to other technology aggregation sources that display a partial set of available assets, Collective IP delivers a complete view of global licensing and commercialization opportunities through a highly intuitive, web-based platform.
“We’ve found Collective IP to be a truly comprehensive search engine for technology transfer,” said Lindsay Lennox, Director of Marketing and Communications for Technology Transfer at the University of Colorado, a premier research institution with four campuses and over $815 million in sponsored research funding in fiscal year 2011-12. “Because of its unique data engine, Collective IP provides tremendous opportunities for asset identification with a minimum cost and labor burden to tech transfer offices. We would recommend Collective IP to both tech transfer colleagues and industry partners.”
Any technology transfer office may claim their free institution profile at CollectiveIP.com. The institution profile provides a multitude of advantages including:
“We are excited to launch the Collective IP platform at the 2013 BIO International Convention and to immediately begin solving material marketing challenges faced by technology transfer
offices; our technology sector-based beta customers have already indicated significant time gains in asset identification,” said Adam Rubenstein, President and CEO of Collective IP. “With time decaying assets such as granted patents, it is critical to gain immediate access to a comprehensive and accurate database for opportunity identification, due diligence, competitive intelligence and intellectual property strategy needs; the Collective IP platform maximizes value for all parties participating in the discovery to commercialization process.”
Designed with business development professionals in mind, it has never been easier to quickly and comprehensively access technology transfer information. Collective IP allows rapid identification of relevant results by geography, asset type, organization and inventor; providing users with an unparalleled view of global licensing opportunities.
