CogniVista consultants have worked with industry visionaries and domain experts in developing patented technology in the following scenarios:
A "patent pending" status already exists and you, the patent holder, now want to build a business around the idea and implement the technology as described in the patent.
To protect your your patent, we ensure that the system built matches the claims and methods detailed in the patent. We understand that starting a new business often requires investment capital. Investors want to see results. We have experience in rapid prototype development. This working prototype can be used to show investors your progress and potential customers the value of your idea. We can then help you develop a fully functional production system. As part of that process, we will work with you and the other business leaders to develop business structures, strategies, and processes to maximize return on investment (ROI) and manage risk effectively.
No patent exists, just a business need or a good idea.
We can assist you in analyzing the business needs and propose innovative solutions along the way. During the process, a unique method may emerge that is a patentable idea. We will work with you and your patent attorney to translate aspects of the technology into a patent application. We can then help to develop your business structures, strategies, and processes to maximize return on investment (ROI) and manage risk effectively.
You are integrating the technology of a third party and you want to ensure that the systems you are buidling do not infringe on the third party's patent, nor limit you organization's ability to file its own patent based on the technology you are developing.
We will be happy to review your technology, the third party's technology, and any other relavant technologies, then offer guidance. We can point out logic and technology potholes. Please note: we are not lawyers and so you will need to consult with your lawyer regarding potential legal issues.
NOTE: We are not lawyers and do NOT give legal advise. We are technology experts who have been through the patent process several times.
