Inven2 works actively with discovering ideas at Oslo University Hospital and the University of Oslo. Our goal is that all employees at these institutions shall have their personal Inven2 contact.
When you send your idea to Inven2 it will be carefully assessed on the basis of technological requirements, considered whether the intellectual rights can be protected and whether it has commercial potential. If your idea passes this test a project is created and resources are assigned. The assessment will be done in collaboration with you. You will receive our evaluation within 2 months.
3. Market Analysis
When the idea has qualified as a project, we develop a commercial strategy in the form of a business concept where we uncover the market need and clarify the necessary steps to bring the idea from technology to a new product. This work is done in close cooperation with industry to identify the critical factors for successful commercialization. Based on the commercial strategy, we develop a strategy for securing intellectual rights.
Verification of technology and markets is necessary to bring the idea from technology to product. This is a very resource-intensive phase that requires public funding. The Norwegian Research Councils FORNY program is a very important contributor for realization of ideas in this phase.
Our goal is to license your idea to existing industry or create a new business based on the idea. We develop a business plan or a detailed strategy for the acquisition of capital or licensing of the idea. As a significant incentive the inventor of the idea will receive 1 / 3 of net licensing revenues.
6. Corporate Development
Inven2 will follow the new start-up company or licensing partner closely. Our goal is for companies to be as independent as possible and to have the financial strength to develop further according to the business plan. We constantly seek partners for our start-up companies in order to secure funding and commercial success.
