Daniel and his team have been developing and implementing a wide variety of licensing and IP commercialisation programs for Australian companies and individual innovators, since 1987.
Our consultants have extensive experience in preparing situational analyses for planned product and service innovations, for even the most complex of concepts. All of our consultants have more than 5 years’ experience in a hands-on role, managing major corporate or public companies. All have relevant postgraduate degrees and have worked within the practical, “outside-in” commercialisation process, co-developed by Daniel O’Connor in Australia.
We provide our services to large corporate, tertiary institutions and individual innovators. We take the complexity and mystery out of commercialisation, so that owners can adapt these skills and rules to their next projects. While most consulting firms in this space are focussed around the legal and financial aspects of IP management, we are firmly focussed on the practical project management of getting R&D concepts into markets. We help you get your project to a realisation point, where you can cash in on the intellectual property through a defined, structured Exit.
We work with your senior management and contractors and we deliver accountability and regular project status review to ensure the project meets its milestones and achieves its outcomes in a timely manner. Delays cost projects money, and can create competition. When ideas are delayed, the the industry has an opportunity to catch up, and your project could face competition from the day of launch, despite any protective measures you have taken. Speed to market is generally tempered with quality and structured demand. Our teen users market validation points at every aspect of the development and the commercialisation, to ensure that project will meet the demand of the potential buyers and will be suitable for the distributors wholesalers or licensees.
Some of the services we provide include:
The Team can organise independent valuations of intellectual property and prepare position papers, project plans and patent briefs for commercialisation. This service can extend to the identification of target organisations likely to need the intellectual property.
We transition IP from the R&D process into early-stage commercialisation and can select and train the right commercial team to get the most out of the innovation, at the fastest possible rate.
We have commercialised intellectual property across a wide variety of industries and we have prepared and presented project position papers on concepts to prospective investors and negotiated joint-ventures, licences and sale of intellectual property around the World.
If an organisation has intellectual property that suits vending the licence into a new IPO start-up company, our trained consultants can negotiate a licence to use or distribute the IP within the client’s existing business territory.
The IP commercialisation services include:
Adequately defining what a project does and how it will attract buyers or users is crucial to success. The Consulting Team prepares concise position statements that define the project, the management team and key personnel, the corporate intent, the product range and development progress, the market and the industry as well as the capital structure and investment history.
Getting the appropriate resources, including Debt, grant or equity funding, key personnel, channel definition and commitment. We also prepare environment audits to determine any issues, factors or entities that could impact on your project, from such areas as political, legal, regulatory issues, social and societal issues, economic issues, competitive and technological issues. This audit process is used to ensure the project has addressed every external variable in the planning stages, prior to implementation.
