Throughout the submission process we hope accomplish 3 primary goals:
Make the process understandable.
Ensure that your product is considered in a thoughtful and timely manner.
Dedicate staff to act as an advocate and intermediary in the process (New Product Engineer).
Here are the steps in the process:
Submit: After submitting your product, you can usually expect to receive a response from us within 2-3 business days confirming receipt and asking any clarifying questions.
Summarize and Present: Our New Product Engineer writes up a summary of the invention and their view on the problem/solution, and presents that summary to key decision makers in a monthly meeting. Some products Alliance is able to make an immediate decision on; other products require some time to research and evaluate.
License: Alliance will determine whether to license your product, and if we do, you’re off and running. If we don’t, then we will advise you of that decision.
