Programs for Academic & Research Institutions

Patent Portfolio Mining

Academic and research institutions invest significantly in their patent portfolios, not only to obtain these assets but also to maintain them over their life. All too often, the economic potential of these portfolios remain untapped.

Fish and Bastille have developed an unparalleled patent mining program that unlocks the value of your institution’s patents. Our subject matter experts individually review every patent you submit to our Program (we do not utilize software to assess your patents’ commercial potential). When we find hidden gems, we commercialize them and split the profit we generate with your institution. If we are unsuccessful, your institution owes us nothing.

Value With No Financial Risk

Our patent mining program will provide your institution with valuable information about each patent:

  • Whether an existing product or service is using your patented technology
  • Whether your technology potentially has commercial value in any industries
  • Whether the commercial potential of the technology is so low that your patent can be considered for abandonment

How It Works

Step 1: Enter Into Agreements
Enter into separate agreements with Fish and Bastille that identify the patents your institution has selected for review.

Step 2: Review the Commercialization Strategy
Fish and Bastille analyze each patent and develop a commercialization strategy for your review and approval.

Step 3: Generate Revenue
The Bastille Program implements the approved commercialization strategy. Your institution retains control throughout the entire process, and we work to make sure our strategies remain consistent with your goals.
