SERVICES: TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER
Your intellectual property is important to us. That's why we utilize sophisticated information gathering techniques to compile a concise overview of the industry and markets for each technology group. We glean potential contacts from an exhaustive list of industry participants, query them on their level of interest in subject technologies, and provide carefully prepared, insightful materials which spotlight your technologies. We make regular, personal contact with the prospects to provide additional information and to monitor their level of interest. Finally, we negotiate suitable terms and follow through on all aspects of successful licensing. 



FPI offers four major technology transfer services.  Click on each service for a more detailed description.
