Our Philosophy and Process
We understand that most licensees need to invest substantial time and resources in preparing a commercial product or process for market. Take that investment into consideration, our licensing terms are flexible (within legal constraints imposed by law) and tailored to match market realities.
We are in the beginning stages of making technologies available so we hope you check our currently Available Technologies regularly. By contacting us with your specific interests, we will keep you informed of new technologies which may become available in your area of interest.
