The Benefits of Early Engagement

How Does Early Engagement Help You?

We welcome the opportunity to talk and work with you months or even years before there is an innovation ready for distribution or disclosure to our office. C4C has added significant resources that can help develop the commercial potential of your research, without compromising its integrity.

From understanding how your work fits with industry needs to identifying potential commercial partners, we’re here to help make connections, map out the competitive landscape, provide early intellectual property analyses, and manage intellectual property issues.
