Tech-Transfer Process

People with a new ideas are called cranks by the time they succeed.
Mark Twain

Preparation is King
Excellent Business case and deal rational – understanding the market and its players – know your strengths and weaknesses –  “action!”

Research of interested partners – direct contact – ranking interest according to „best fit“ criteria – entering into a due diligence

Signing & Closing a deal
Coordination of due diligence and support in negotiations in order to signing a contract & close a deal

Support  in the transfer & integration process to reduce the cultural clash

What is IP?
Transferring technology from small, innovative units to the “sourcing-in” industry is gaining in priority and is used to secure future product pipelines.

An innovation has a subjective utility and value for a possible buyer or licensee, which is usually difficult to prove or represent.

In most cases, the marketing of a technology / innovation is much more successful on the basis of an extensive business case “in the language of possible buyers / licensees”.
Are we dealing with a solution to a problem? Or is a solution lookign for a problem?
And why has it not been solved yet?

We focus on mature Technology and Innovative Concepts with high up-side potential on a global basis.
Technology licensing and innovation transfer means less business risk for the innovator and can be more lucrative than setting up an own operation.

in brief: IP to market.

Fit For Transfer

Doubt is the father of invention.
Galileo Galilei

What would be the answer to such questions?
Is the realistic strategy based on facts and supported by all parties?

How unique and strong is the innovation and what is it going to replace?

What is the value added of the innovation and who are the winners and losers?

Full control over the entire value chain and who will pay for it?

Who decides if the innovation is “ready for business”?

Is the innovation rather “first mover”, “early follower” or “me too”?

Do I have a diversified multidisciplinary first class team beyond enthusiasm?

What conditions will make you closing a deal and comes there after?
