Inventing is more than generating creative ideas

Over the past two decades, a growing number of STEM-intensive client companies have used our Invention Workshops to generate strategic inventions. Resulting patents enable client companies (the patent holders) and their licensees to preempt competitors by anticipating emerging markets and creating strategic “options” for the future.

Many clients view these patents as strategic business assets more than merely legal protections. These strategic patents create new corporate capital that can be converted into new revenue streams, strategic advantage and negotiating positions.

We design and facilitate two- and three-day Invention Workshops to enable clients to systematically create intellectual property in order influence the trajectory of emerging markets.

“I continue to respect Lanny as an uber-facilitator for innovation workshops. The ability that Lanny has to come up to speed quickly on terminology and lingo in a particular domain and the finesse in which he expeditiously earns the trust of the team and gels individual participants into brainstorming breakthrough ideas is simply wonderful.”
