The Patent Board tracks and analyzes innovation, movement, and the business value of patent assets across every industry globally.

The essential elements for reliable methods of valuing patent-based intellectual property are; a comprehensive database of patents, financial data, and scientific metrics. All must be searchable by type and content. These essentials provide an objective analytic platform to assess current value and the potential for future revenues using mathematically based tools and a correlated set of metrics. The most important attribute is the presence of a set of metrics that correlate patent content with actionable strategies, such as mapping successful products and revenue to patents.

The Patent Board’s analytic platform is such a system consisting of accurate, timely and tailored databases enhanced by standard metrics and analytic tools. It is optimized for both corporate and investment communities. The Patent Board's analytic platform allows our colleagues, clients, and members to gain valuable insight and optimize patent-based IP strategies.
