We provide thought leadership and support to clients across a broad range of industries including consumer electronics, clean/green energy, financial services, automotive, mobile, information technology, gaming, and healthcare. Our clients work with new technologies and standards, including wireless and mobile devices, broadband networks, internet security, smart/clean energy, unified communications, and security.
Accelerating Market Acceptance
We're an alliance management company, based on the concept that collaborative efforts can accelerate mass-market acceptance of emerging standards and technologies. We help alliance members collaborate productively to establish standards, ensure interoperability, and drive adoption.
Inventures addresses areas where collaborators typically need support, e.g., alliance formation and launch, standards structuring, member recruitment and ecosystem growth, marketing and communications, event management, certification strategy development and administration, and business operations.
We help our clients navigate the business alliance lifecycle from introduction to maturity by leveraging our proven solutions and best practices. Inventures has successfully launched more than 40 business ecosystems, and we can provide the benefits of this experience to your new technology or initiative.
A Focused Mission
Bigger markets mean more opportunities for everyone. We provide concrete plans to help expand your potential market exponentially, and then provide counsel and program support to engage that market successfully. We can also help you avoid the common pitfalls that new organizations typically make. The most important thing is to have a focused mission. Hence, we encourage our clients to have laser beam focus on how to take their key messages to market.

Inventures began in 1992. Initially, we focused on providing due-diligence services for venture capital firms, and counseling services for startups, including strategy, product, and market development. We learned that collaborative alliances among companies, even natural competitors, can be a powerful approach for rapidly developing and growing new markets, and today, as an alliance management company, we offer a comprehensive range of a la carte services to start, launch, manage, and grow alliances.
