RPX Group helps organizations accelerate their innovations from laboratory to market.
Universities, research laboratories, and companies produce significant numbers of innovations that have the potential to generate meaningful returns. Most organizations find it challenging to realize the full value of these innovations due to the need to focus on core opportunities and meet short-term objectives.
Since 2002, RPX Group has assisted innovators and their firms by capturing the value of disruptive technologies through the creation and spinout of new enterprises. We partner with you in all aspects of the process, including sharing the risk by accepting equity in the enterprises we create together.
RPX stands for Research, Planning and eXecution. Our process applies these principles to the seven key factors of new enterprise development. To learn more, click on any of the individual factors below.

In addition we can also support the process through supplemental outreach programs such as the Whiteboard Challenge that educate and inform your inventor community.
