We market our developed products directly, or through the licensing, franchising, or outright sale of an Intellectual Property to an outside Enterprise.

We seek Enterprises with infrastructure already in place that are looking for new, complementary, replacement, or upgrade technologies in their current markets, or in their desired entry markets. For each product/I.P. we have knowledge of its market sector, competing technologies, those already in that market space, product penetration and the market and IP values.

Our goal is to help make significant, positive changes in our world while providing an exciting, challenging, and rewarding opportunity for our associates, partners and clients.
