Do you have an innovative idea you’d like to take public? When obtaining the rights to an invention, it’s necessary to file an IP (intellectual property) patent. So, what do you need to know about this type of license, and how can you obtain one?
According to serial entrepreneur and inventor Martin Renkis, it’s crucial to acquire multiple patents to protect each idea related to your invention. For this reason, he recommends developing a portfolio to maximize the value of your product. Martin emphasizes the importance of strategizing and forecasting each patent to optimize your portfolio and create a product roadmap. With patent technologies such as Neo IP and Patent Forecast, you can allocate your portfolio, determine the value of your patents, and hone in on a specific category for your product.
