What if the key to your innovation challenge already exists? Xinova has thousands of experts spanning every technical discipline who are ready to help you look far afield to find the key to a technical unlock. Many pre-existing technologies can be applied in more than one function, yet they remain underutilized without an interdisciplinary approach designed to identify promising technologies in unexpected places that can solve technical challenges in unusual ways. Xinova employs our innovator network to find and then redesign, augment, or reconfigure an application to fit the needs of your problem.
In many ways, fitting an old technology into a new application is an ideal solution. There’s less risk and expense involved when compared to conceiving, prototyping, and building a whole new invention. Xinova’s Request of Technology (RFT) focuses solely on existing innovations (in development or commercially available) and innovative solutions that adapt or augment existing technology to solve the biggest problems.
With each solution, we conduct a thorough process of due diligence that assesses prototyping, reviews business modeling, undergoes technical and technology accessibility assessments, evaluates usability, determines IP mapping, etc. Focusing on pre-existing technologies expedites the solution process and mitigates legal, regulatory, and development risks. This process typically takes two months with key milestones happening throughout the process.
