IAM Market – the sales and technology transactions portal we launched on 20th October – has attracted a great deal of interest, with many hundreds of people already having registered to browse the IP and technology being offered for sale, licence and transfer by our vendor companies. If you have not registered, you should; if you have, make sure that you pay regular visits as vendors are adding to their offerings all the time.

IAM Market is an online portal that allows IP owners to profile their technology licensing and patent transactions programmes, as well as to provide details of specific assets that they are interested in doing business on.
Designed for IAM’s global readership of IP leaders, this unique platform will ensure that businesses of all sizes can present the rights and technologies that they have available for license, sale or transfer to key decision makers, potentially saving both sides in a transaction significant amounts of time and money.
IAM’s only source of revenue from IAM Market is the subscription fees that vendors pay to secure a place within the portal. IAM will take no part in any deals that may be done – in fact, will have no knowledge of them - and will receive no additional payments of any kind from vendors beyond the annual subscription fee. IAM merely supplies the means through which potential partners can make contact and begin their discussions. This, plus IAM’s extensive reach into both the buy and sell sides of the IP deals market internationally, makes IAM Market unlike any other online or real-world IP exchange ever developed.
Access to IAM Market is free for potential buyers, licensees and partners, as well as their representatives, subject to approval on registration. You can register here.
