Individuals and companies apply for more than 20,000 patents every year in Japan alone.
Despite--or because of--this overwhelming number of patent applications, the Japanese patent market has no way to properly match patent owners with those who can use them most profitably.
The sad fact is that today, even the most brilliant inventions (or proprietary technologies) fail to benefit society because they aren't ultimately developed into a marketable product.
We call this the "Patent Gap." It's the divide between good inventions and the ability to develop them into profitable real-world uses.
We bridge the Patent Gap by bringing inventions to society in a way that benefits all.
