About Us

At IPscreener we support more sustainable innovation. Our aim is:

  • To democratize IP so that everyone may benefit from the treasure of information hidden in patents.
  • To inspire and amplify new ideas.
  • To reveal trends and show the innovation landscape of what others have been up to.
  • To help minimize the risk of investing efforts in already known concepts.

We believe that the use of semantic AI text based searches is a key to cope with the new challenges and that is why we built IPscreener.
