  • KEY MESSAGE: ‘competence commercialization’ is the structured way of working with submitted ideas & inventions.
    Investment decisions are done by ACE management based on assessment on three streams. All decisions are documented and communicated to inventors. Aim is to handle all cases with same level of intensity and give all equal chance to prove potential.
    NOT TO MENTION: Customer can choose route and get investments by own decision. Process is only for investing money into cases. process is highly structured with detailed descriptions of what to do.
  • KEY MESSAGE: Not all cases become start ups. Not all are patented. Exceptional cases are put forward with speed (external IP, mature case). Some cases lack commercial potential and/or require more research / thinking. Other organizations are linked by ACE.
    NOT TO MENTION: only the best ones are selected in evaluation.
