Patents are an increasingly important asset class. In fact, they are the most valuable assets of many technology companies. Each year half a million US patent applications are filed, and the annual value of patent related transactions exceed $20B. However the tools needed to understand, search, evaluate patents, and file patent applications are too exclusive, too costly, and too esoteric for all but the specialized IP professionals and large companies. Patentory exists to transform the way we work with patents.
