The AutoHarvest ecosystem is providing new opportunities for solution providers and inventors every day. This month, one of the world’s largest transportation suppliers has provided multiple needs for our members to solve and become part of their innovation supply chain. Technical challenges in automotive cyber security have given rise to frequent conferences of experts tackling the myriad issues of connected and autonomous vehicles, providing a new convergence for IT and transportation entities. As traditional OEMs ramp up their mobility initiatives, it is easy to expect more R&D, partnering, acquisitions and novel public-private partnerships to develop around the globe. This is a team effort.

The I-Hub helps members obtain relevant knowledge to transact IP and evolve next-tech products with technology landscaping software, unique databases, government resources, in-the-pulse blogs and innovation leader presentations. This month we added the renowned les Nouvelles magazine — Article of the Month, offered by the Licensing Executives Society International. The 2016 industry event roster now exceeds 45 world class gatherings. We have assembled automotive industry leaders to participate in an all-day forum on “Mobility Innovation in the 21st Century”, a panel “Conflict or Cooperation” at the IP in the Auto Industry conference, and will be demonstrating our system to an open house during the NewCo Detroit Festival.

As always, we invite all readers to join our intellectual property marketplace, free of charge, and engage the community. Join and get One-Click-Closer® to being our next success story.
