Over the past 20 years, Canadian patents owned by foreign firms have tripled. Meanwhile, the role of IP assets in Canada’s economy has been diminishing since 2000.
The implications of these trends are significant.
With more foreign ownership of locally invented patents, Canadian businesses may have limited opportunities to benefit from their innovations.
To reverse this trend, Innovation Asset Collective (IAC) has partnered with national and local organizations. IAC aims to provide companies like yours with necessary resources to use your IP to source capital and to access and compete in a market more effectively.
