Alliances


Companies today are looking with greater frequency at the latent IP licensing potential of their portfolios. CVT assists our clients by identifying licensing and commercialization opportunities (and potential liabilities) and provides deep market research and financial analysis to ensure that these efforts are aligned with overall business strategy. By segmenting the portfolio, mapping to addressable products and revenues, and technically assessing the IP, we can help you build the strategy to deliver both long-term and short-term results. We are also able to help you develop the roadmap and implementation plan to realize the licensing potential.
