New partnership driving innovative technologies to market

Inventya Ltd, a leading commercialisation consultancy based in Cheshire, today announces its partnership with the UK Innovation Forum (UKIF). Both organisations focus upon bringing world-class technology innovations to market, with UKIF offering possibly the largest online marketplace for licensable technologies originating from the international research base. The partnership will benefit firms and investors alike looking for new technologies and market opportunities.

Partnering and licensing opportunities are particularly rich. UKIF currently has more than 35,000 licensable technologies listed in its database, reaching around 100,000 licensable opportunities by the end of 2015. UKIF’s membership services facilitate effective scouting, licensing & collaborative activities, offering a great deal to corporate and smaller firms looking to develop new technologies and enter new markets.

Dr Gerald Law, UKIF’s CEO explains: “UKIF has known Inventya for some years and have worked with them directly on several occasions. We feel the offering provided by Inventya complements that of UKIF in a way that can only bring value to our members and we are delighted to announce this collaboration.”

Inventya’s CEO, Aldo De Leonibus adds: ”The partnership is entirely complementary. Inventya has a great track record in helping firms take new technology-led products and services to market, quickly and profitably. We provide market evidence and customer insight to help our clients enter the right markets with the right propositions, and our clients often want to keep up with state-of-the-art developments and investment opportunities. We’ll now be sign-posting UKIF’s value-added services to our clients too.”

UKIF offers a range of free and subscription services designed to help universities and businesses turn technological innovation into commercial success. These services include online forums and content, brokering introductions and meetings, searchable technology databases, and networking events. UKIF’s community includes investors, entrepreneurs and business owners from the corporate and small business sectors, university technology transfer experts, and patent attorneys. www.if-forums.com
