We cooperate with Meissner Bolte and partners to achieve this and 2iNNOVATE maintains a strong network with many other regional patent attorneys. This is the basis for the worldwide protection and marketing of your idea.
International partners market your idea as licenses worldwide. An own company for your idea may be founded.
No one can know relevant companies and decision makers in all markets worldwide. Therefore 2iNNOVATE relies on an international cooperation network of professionals in licensing.
Find suitable investors for the development and international distribution of your idea.
