WE BRING A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE TO THE FAST-PACED WORLD OF PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

A 2014 independent study conducted by Emanus and Lee Hecht Harrison pointed to the following reasons for seeking the help of Emanus:

“I have limited RESOURCES.”

“I’m at a stage in life (age, job picture, responsibilities) with the FREEDOM to purse opportunities.”

“I don’t know how to set up a business or determine a market.”

“I’m in need of strong leadership to drive an innovative product idea.”

“I have a strong drive to be independent but I’m unsure of my skill sets.”

“I am risk-averse.”

“I can’t see the future and the positive benefits of a properly developed product.”

“I’m in need of working capital.”

Why Work with Emanus

To find new market opportunities

  • Extend current product lines to generate additional/new revenue
  • Find exploitable white and green spaces where new and/or existing products can satisfy known or projected market demands

To commercialize patent assets

  • Identify “best-fit” licensees
  • Negotiate maximized transaction terms

To get it right—right from the beginning

  • Effectively manage from the onset of a planned product-market venture through product launch
  • Identify best market entry points along the IP and product development life cycle
  • Determine the features and structure of new products (ideation)
  • Protect and secure valuable ideas and inventions (patenting)
  • Research markets for potential demand, competitive environment, and approach to commercialization (market research)
  • Identify avenues for revenue generation via patent licensing and/or venturing (strategic commercialization)
  • Monetize patent assets, along with providing business development and sales support.

IT ALL STARTS WITH ONE GOOD IDEA WORTH PROTECTING

Securing ideas and inventions through patenting opens the door to business growth and revenue generation. With protection, entrepreneurs can more easily surmount the resistance companies have to signing confidentiality agreements. Filed patents afford easier and more open discussions with potential partners and/or licensees.

Patenting provides 20 years of protection from others copying – i.e., using, manufacturing, selling, or importing – your product and invention features. It is a favorable asset for raising venture capital to support product development; and for manufacturers, patenting activity underlies a platform for further innovation.

IDEATION

“Eureka!” It’s the genesis of great ideas. At Emanus, we help our clients create great ideas by enveloping them in methodical processes that reveal marketable products to create and fill new demand.

Whether an entirely new product or extensions of a current product, Emanus provides support to harness the power and insights of an IP-leveraged product development strategy.

ASSESSMENT

In Pursuit of Success. A key task for Emanus involves careful assessment of ideas with the pursuit of successful market uptake.

We review potential demand, revenue, manufacturing sources, pricing structure, competition, distribution, and channel partners to develop business models that capture the attention of investors and large companies.

DEVELOPMENT ENHANCED THROUGH COLLABORATION

Emanus examines current product and demand environments to seed the innovative thinking of entrepreneurs, domain experts, and everyday tinkerers with great ideas to collectively take to market. Carefully selected groups are syndicated for the purpose of licensing well-established companies looking to stock shelves with new, high-demand products.

We work in concert to provide a holistic approach to IP commercialization while eliminating costly overhead and exorbitant rates.
