What is our business model?

For Universities:

Our engagement with universities begins with an intensive onboarding period that includes user training, defining the search scope, and initial reporting. This phase is followed by an annual license that offers the flexibility of month-to-month cancellation. Our pricing reflects the varied needs of academic institutions: • Onboarding: A 3-month phase costing between €5,000 and €7,000. • Monthly License: Priced from €1,000 to €2,500, the cost varies based on the number of papers and users.

For Government Agencies:

We tailor our services for government agencies starting with a precise definition of search scopes and data sources. This includes research patents, papers, and linkage to proprietary databases. Outputs are customized, delivered either through reports or dashboards. This offering is structured as an annual or multi-year commitment to ecosystem monitoring, with pricing dependent on the chosen duration and data usage.

For Investors & Corporates:

Investors and corporate clients start with an onboarding period during which we focus on training users, defining search scopes, identifying technology fields, and specifying geographical regions of interest. This period transitions into an annual license with the option for month-to-month termination, plus the possibility for additional reporting and data requests: • Onboarding: A 3-month period costing between €5,000 and €7,000. • Monthly License: Ranging from €2,500 to €5,000, the price adjusts according to the scope of papers, users, and any extra requests.
