Charleston, SC & Austin, TX: February 18, 2020 – Liquidax Capital and Ruckus Innovation are pleased to announce they have entered a global strategic venture combining Ruckus’s industry leading innovation services with Liquidax’s advanced strategic intellectual property management and technology commercialization solutions.
With innovation and technology playing an increasingly critical role in every aspect of business; companies are recognizing that they need to accelerate their digital transformation, enhance their competitive positions and continue to increase shareholder value; all while mitigating risk through proven strategies.
Traditional R&D and its internal execution no longer meet the needs of fast-moving technology and product development cycles. Innovation and IP Asset partnerships are critical in the acceleration of development, management, and commercialization cycles to transform today’s technologies, products and services.IP Assets are Critical
Innovation and Intellectual property asset protections are essential and required to gain and maintain a market leadership position in any market sector. Digital and product transformations are much stronger and more successful when secured with US and global patent protection.
A POWERFUL STRATEGIC SOLUTION
The Liquidax-Ruckus venture provides clients with a powerful and strategic solution that begins with the initial ideation process where powerful innovations quickly rise to the top and align with a client’s core business. This allows Ruckus to methodically extract defined innovations needed to dominate markets. Simultaneously, Liquidax rapidly assesses technical claims from 1000’s of patents to strategically identify, correlate and acquire intellectual property assets that protect the innovation. This creates an initial IP asset portfolio and platform protection that matures with continuous expert analysis and development. Liquidax can utilize its investment capital to build this portfolio and platform and exclusively license to clients, finance for clients, or simply provide its solution as a service.
The Liquidax-Ruckus venture brings experts from across the world to support all stages of digital transformation, innovation, commercialization & market protection. This venture is solely dedicated to the success of our clients, ensuring industry leadership and increasing market value.
“The Liquidax-Ruckus venture is an innovative and powerful combination, aimed at bringing client projects into the real world, setting them up for significant market impact. Ruckus’s extensive experience in innovation methodologies and facilitating client innovation, design and technology industry expertise, and collaborative approach is uniquely complementary to Liquidax’s core offerings,” said Chris Tisdel, Ruckus Innovation President and CEO. “We believe this will allow us to serve clients in a larger, lifecycle approach where we not only facilitate radically impactful ideation, but immediately begin to identify and align value and investment strategies with large market potential.”
“Leveraging the power of Ruckus Innovation to deliver superior front-end ideation and innovation solutions to clients allows Liquidax to match the highest-performing intellectual property assets at all levels, ensuring clients achieve superior market leading technologies and the proprietary rights needed to dominate markets and drive accelerated growth and shareholder value. Liquidax performed significant due diligence on innovation and ideation organizations across the globe and by far the Ruckus team kept rising to the top. Working closely with the Ruckus team will allow Liquidax to provide the most strategic, most competitive and strongest intellectual property asset portfolios for every client ensuring new innovations come out the gate with significant patent protections,” said Daniel Drolet, Liquidax CEO. “Together, working as one team, we will rapidly unlock the full potential of a client’s new digital innovation.”
