How AE Helps...

strategy consulting bullet Technology
Transfer Offices (TTOs)

TTOs at universities, government labs, and corporations often receive hundreds of invention disclosures per year. Not every invention can be pursued commercially.

Which opportunities should be pursued, when, and how?
Leveraging industry relationships/access and internal staff, AE helps to strategize about and evaluate new opportunities, market the most promising, establish deals, and train staff to optimize opportunities for long-term success.
strategy consulting bullet New Product
Development Teams
Established corporations and entrepreneurs pursue innovative ideas for profit. Some opportunities fall outside of markets familiar to the team, and/or the staff do not have time to explore all options.

strategy consulting bullet Private Equity Investors Venture investors see hundreds of deals per year. Only a minority of these deals are pursued, with increasing pressure to minimize risk and maximize return.
