The keynote presentation highlighted approaches to integrating NASA technologies into the automotive sector. AutoHarvest currently features over 100 NASA technologies available for licensing, so sign up for AutoHarvest.org access and start connecting with NASA directly.
Joining the Innovation Hub is Innovation2Pivot, an online Innovation Toolkit deploying the Discovery - Incubation - Acceleration (D-I-A) Methodology. Designed by the author of "Pivot- How Top Entrepreneurs Adapt and Change Course to Find Ultimate Success," the platform employs a unique innovation roadmap that utilizes a series of pointed questions, allowing entrepreneurs to more effectively manage their innovation process. AutoHarvest members enjoy an extended 45 day free trial period for this software tool.
Intellectual Asset Management Magazine's (IAM) recent blog post, "AutoHarvest’s early success proves that patents are about so much more than exclusion" cites a feature by Crain’s Detroit Business entitled "IP speed dating: AutoHarvest gathers partners, buffs up website". The blog post further notes that IAM provided an in-depth look at IP-driven collaboration and open innovation in the automotive industry ("Engines of Collaboration") in its current issue.
We have updated our participation plans for industry expos and hope to see you at one of these outstanding events.
