IPwe Patent Licensing

Licensing patents does not need to be a complex endeavor. IPwe can make it simpler, faster and far less expensive to license patents for all parties involved.

Executive Summary

The process from identification of appropriate licensing candidates to licensing execution and monitoring currently takes significant internal resources, time and capital that limit opportunities. Intermediaries are often engaged and spend time on low value endeavors instead of delivering high value services their clients want, that result in further delays and expense.

Given the scarce resources of time and capital, IPwe leverages smart contracts and artificial intelligence (AI) to introduce a transaction platform where licensors and licensees can evaluate and execute transactions in a digital and secure environment and intermediaries can deliver the highest value services.

IPwe recognizes that not all patent licensing transactions will occur in the efficiency of an electronic environment. Some patent transactions still require in-person negotiations and complexities, but our platform addresses the vast majority of patent transactions that can leverage AI and blockchain powered patent assessment, smart contracts and efficiencies that facilitate transactions that require fewer resources.
