History of Patent Syndication Patent Syndication per se, is relatively new however it is usually for granted patents or patents with proven and reliable income streams. The participants are usually high wealth individuals, major corporations or those in the know. For the rest, there are very limited options. As a result and because of the personal experiences of the individuals associated with patentsyndication.com and the feedback from other inventors over the last 3 years, experiencing the pain of the setbacks and rejections from the patenting and monetizing processes, the new Patent Syndication concept was developed. The new Patent Syndication concept opens up a fair and transparent way for all parties including inventors, patent owners and investors to participate in the patent syndication process which was designed to benefit everyone, from first time inventors to the big end of town.

Is tapping the crowds the future of funding? Crowd funding matches entrepreneurs with members of the public who are keen to investEnterprises pitch their business plans to potential investors onlineUK-based Crowdcube has so far helped SMEs find almost $450,000 in equity funding (CNN) -- Small and medium size businesses (SMEs) struggling to convince banks to loan them money are turning instead to the masses, in a new strategy being called crowd funding. It works like this: Enterprises pitch their business plans to potential investors online. It allows for a large number of people to contribute smaller amounts, rather than a SME needing to attract a couple of big investors. Crowd funding for businesses is a relatively new idea.

Proactive IP Management: Commercialization of Patents Patent Purchases and Sales:The patent databases of the leading patent filing countries offer what is considered to be the most comprehensive source of technical information available anywhere. It is not always necessary to develop technology in-house, when there is often great technology available for purchasing or licensing. Patenting Solutions can help you locate critical technology, and to facilitate your purchasing or selling of the desired technology. Furthermore, a well managed IP portfolio would help you identify obsolete and potentially damaging IP assets. Abandoning or preferably selling off of such IP assets would potentially increase revenues and allow you to significantly cut-down on IP asset maintenance costs. Technology Transfer and Licensing:Your entity can increase its revenues and its technology lead by transferring or sharing its skills, knowledge, technologies, methods of manufacturing etc. to a third party.
