Free stuff is awesome. But let’s face it, there’s usually a catch to ‘free’. Getting information on patents is free — the catch is that sorting through patents can be incredibly time consuming since — even just for cleantech, there are thousands of cleantech patents ever year.
Enter CleanTech PatentEdge, a monthly service that “sorts patent data in a nice online interface, features analytic tools, monthly updated results and enterprise sharing capabilities,” as Renewable Energy World reports.
This sorting can provide data to guide venture investment decisions in the cleantech patent world. The information CleanTech PatentEdge outlines can include data about competitors, companies with robust patent portfolios, the defensibility of patent portfolios, and elucidate cleantech patent trends in the market.
CleanTech PatentEdge costs $180 a month for individual users and $450 a month for three to five users.
