InventionShare functions as a perpetual and exclusive ‘Breakthrough Invention Fund’ that creates and develops ‘Invention Companies’ rather than high risk ‘Operating Companies’. This approach dramatically accelerates the adoption of breakthrough technologies by augmenting the innovation pipeline of large global companies – for extraordinary financial outcomes and high social impact. We do this by attracting and representing credible senior inventors with a track record, through our ‘inventor friendly’ success-based model, and we support, amplify, protect and validate their seminal inventions with non-dilutive financial capital – in stark contrast to operating companies, where each successive round of funding further dilutes the inventors’ equity share. In addition, our new breakthrough invention development paradigm eliminates, or greatly reduces the risk profile faced by traditional OpCo’s. With truly breakhrough inventions, there is little or no market or adoption risk. And because we don’t need to build operating infrastructure like product development, marketing and sales, etc., execution risk is greatly diminished. This leaves us free to focus our attention on three key areas: (1) establishing convincing technical proof-of concept; (2) building the foundations of a world-class international patent portfolio; and (3) identifying the best commercialization partner for exit via sale, spin-out, joint venture or exclusive field of use licensing. The dramatic financial and social leverage we achieve is through our deep and distinct intellectual and relationship capital, industry and IP expertise, intelligence tools, process, diligence and discipline.
