How much is an idea worth? Sometimes nothing, sometimes billions, but it doesn’t take much to make the difference between a successful product and one unfairly neglected by the market. Not finding the right way to make the most of a project could be enough.
Every month over one thousand applications are made to the Italian Patents and Trademarks Office (UIBM, Ufficio Italiano Brevetti e Marchi) for inventions and utility models, but less than 10% is transformed into a product or service available on the market. Such percentage is then drastically reduced if we exclude the patent applications by large companies, the only ones organised to implement their own Research & Development projects.
CSB was established to offer anyone who wishes to innovate, particularly medium, small and micro enterprises, a well-proven method of innovation assessment, development and value enhancement that helps good ideas through to the market.
