Innovation in technology fuels our world; it surrounds us, makes us more productive, entertains us and brings us closer together. A balanced ecosystem is one that encourages new discoveries, safeguards ideas and rewards creativity. Balance is critical to ensure innovation continues.
At PanOptis, we bring together some of the industry’s most talented IP minds to create an environment that encourages the use of inventions in a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) manner for patent holders and product manufacturers alike. We accomplish this by identifying the valuable patents in your IP portfolio, then marketing them to global businesses that utilize your technology. By leveraging our in-house patent management services, PanOptis will manage your portfolio so you can focus on innovation and new development.
