Services for Industry
Knowledge Market offers a variety of services to corporate clients. As the world’s capital markets increasingly become borderless, complex and volatile, innovation is more relevant to corporate valuations than ever. Technology is at the cutting edge of virtually every industry in today’s economy. In order to achieve and maintain a strong market position in major markets, companies must have strong balance sheets in addition to earnings potential. Liquidity is strongest when the company’s underlying assets have defensible valuations.
By applying a business case method to technology Knowledge Market enables intelligent selection of IP for product development, market positioning, and increasing shareholder value.
Current methods of selection are limited to searching for technology within small selections of "known" IP. Often, companies will limit themselves to their own internal IP portfolios, consisting of technology derived from internal R&D. Licensing outside IP is typically limited to technology presented by OTLs or other IP brokers.
Furthermore, Knowledge Market’s business case methodology provides a rational basis for valuation of IP. It is estimated that billions of dollars of R&D spending in private and public sectors are unaccounted for on the balance sheets of the IP owners.
Knowledge Market sources valuable external IP and monetizes underutizled internal IP to increase shareholder value.
