Convenience, quality, speed – and no sticker shock!
Don’t you hate it when you read about a product or tool that sounds so helpful, and then you finally see the price and nearly faint? There is no sticker shock with Invention Evaluator – it was built and is managed by experienced tech transfer and IP professionals who understand your budget constraints, as well as your need for a solution to the problems we outline below For research institutions and other non-profits, a complete 40-50 page assessment researched and crafted by our experienced professional staff costs just $595 ($995 for industry and other for-profit users). No other resource can provide you with an unbiased, objective analysis from highly trained professionals at such an affordable price – all in just 10 business days!
The analysis in each Invention Evaluator report is broken down into three sections:
- The technical merits and challenges of your invention, including potential regulatory hurdles and current landscape
- The Intellectual Property rights that you may have available, including detailed search results
- The commercial potential and pathways available to commercialize your invention, including industry trends, investment climate, competitive landscape, and SWOT analysis
PLUS: Each report also includes useful industry information and contacts for potential partners. An Executive Summary is provided at the beginning of each report.
QUICKLY REDUCE YOUR BACKLOG OF INVENTION DISCLOSURES AND MOVE MORE INNOVATIONS FORWARD
Problem: You have a backlog of invention disclosures and, based on current staffing, there’s little hope of getting them all processed any time soon. Not only do you risk overlooking or delaying a valuable invention, you also risk alienating faculty who expect some action.
Solution: Using the expert analysts at Invention Evaluator, you can immediately reduce your burden and, in just 10 days, receive back thorough, detailed analysis and recommendations on each invention you submit. (CLICK HERE to see exactly the depth and quality of the report you’ll receive – 40 to 50 pages of analysis completed by an IP professional – not a computer algorithm.)
GET AN INDEPENDENT ANALYSIS TO RESOLVE CONFLICTS AND ENSURE YOUR PATENT BUDGET IS WISELY SPENT
Problem: There’s internal disagreement or an unclear picture surrounding the potential value of a specific innovation – and you’ve got to decide whether to support it with budget dollars and time.
Solution: Invention Evaluator provides a completely independent, unbiased, and comprehensive look at the market, the competition, the need, and the IP landscape.
HAVE UNBIASED EXPERTS PROVIDE IP ASSESSMENTS AND PRESERVE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH KEY RESEARCHERS
Problem: One of your inventors has gone berserk over your negative assessment of his invention, and he’s gone to the administration in an attempt to force your hand. You don’t want to waste your patent budget on this “vanity” project.
Solution: Invention Evaluator can provide you and your faculty with independent analysis and either support or disagree with your conclusions. Either way you win – because it’s no longer you against a valued researcher.
IMPROVE YOUR OFFICE’S RESPONSIVENESS TO RESEARCHERS AND OVERCOME NEGATIVE PERCEPTIONS
Problem: Your office has acquired a negative view among faculty as a “black hole” where invention disclosures go to die. You want to change that perception and dramatically reduce the time it takes to assess faculty disclosures, but with staffing limits you just can’t seem to make a dent.
Solution: With Invention Evaluator, you get a high-level, professional analysis of each disclosure you choose to submit returned in just 10 days. You can quickly change faculty disappointment into delighted surprise at your office’s fast turnaround and responsiveness.
GET THE HELP YOU NEED, WHEN YOU NEED IT, AND SMOOTH OUT YOUR WORK FLOW
Problem: Although staffing levels are constant, work flow related to disclosures is not. Occasionally and without warning, your office receives an influx of disclosures that threaten to bog staff down and slow other critical work.
Solution: Invention Evaluator is there when you need it, offering an easy, inexpensive way to smooth your work flow and deal with unexpected increases in disclosure submissions. You can even “bank” any number of future reports so as soon as you see staff becoming overloaded, you can send in your submission and get the extra work handled effortlessly.
