Emerging Technology Program

Upstream works with emerging, innovative and IP-rich ventures in the US and Canada, with the goal of turning breakthrough ideas into thriving companies recognized for the value of their knowledge-based assets.

Upstream enrolls emerging companies, on a highly selective basis, into our Emerging Technology Program, on a flexible, shared-success basis.

For companies with less than $1 million in revenue:

Upstream will help them develop their IP positions, develop and test the minimum viable product in the market, and refine their problem/solution fit for optimal returns.

For growth companies, typically with less than $5 million in annual revenue:

We will help with product strategy and execution, partner relationships and financing. Upstream also helps identify a company’s proprietary IP assets and prepare an IP catalogue, which will be instrumental for recognition as a knowledge-based company with valuable intangible assets.
