Technological edge means business: why we’re adding patents to i3

Each investor, innovation executive or business unit manager has their unique process to discover and evaluate companies in a technology area. However, they all share one key criterion to set companies apart: technological edge and the ability to protect it.

With that in mind, we have been hard at work on a feature that would allow you to easily navigate a company’s IP portfolio. And it is now ready! Here’s what we just launched on i3 Connect:

Vitag patents

  • A tile showing US and European patents assigned to this company;
  • Quick access to abstracts and to full patent documents;
  • The ability for start-up users to add patents manually.

We have already accumulated north of 69,000 patents for close to 1,500 companies in sectors like advanced materials, internet of things and electrochemical storage. And the data keeps flowing in.

The possibilities this integration opens up are endless. Short-term, we intend to integrate patent applications, to give you insights on earlier stage emerging technologies. In the future, we hope to recommend companies for your strategic needs based on their current and future IP portfolio.

We are excited for you to to take a look at it! Get started at
