Technology Scouting

Technology scouts help companies find the intellectual property to build great products. They are matchmakers and problem solvers. It takes expertise, time, dedicated relationship building, and critical thinking skills to be an effective tech matchmaker.

Our Technology Scouts are scouring the globe for technology solutions being developed by the brightest minds, leveraging relationships with universities and federal labs.1. Identify problems that can be solved through technology development or acquisition. 2. Search for technology solutions from tech developers. 3. Match the technology solution with the technology problem. 4. Find ways to make the partnership work.

From start to finish Innovate's programs facilitate the scouting process. Our team demonstrates the methods of technology scouting, helps companies connect with scientists and tech transfer officers, and instructs companies on how to license or partner with labs and research centers.
