about IPmart

IPmart is a centralized patent marketplace. We see patents differently. We see much more than a number. We see what an inventor sees, technology. Then, we look around; we look at the technology landscape surrounding a patent. This landscape is continually evolving. It is dynamic. Fitting the patent into this dynamic world brings it to life.

Others might give you a patent number and Title, or cut & paste Abstracts from a Patent Office, or provide […]

Some talk about “innovative IP strategy”;  some want to fund “IP-rich” companies and […]
