"We have massive challenges in healthcare, climate change, we need big solutions from entrepreneurs. We also need collaboration from a global scale across disciplines...we need much better tools to assess the value of impact. This new initiative will help to address many of these questions....it is so timely, it is so important, and thank you to all of you to making this happen."
Professor Chas Bountry, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of University of Oxford.
About Our Business
OxValue.AI commercialises the VEST (Valuation of Early Stage Technology) Tool, which leverages a number of variables, including patent data, initially in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) companies. VEST is a useful new approach for appraising technology, and an important guide for decision-making in technology investment, transfer and commercialisation.
Our valuation service can be used in the following scenarios for different users:
Startups: technology financing
Innovation teams: technology transfer, and estimation of the value of a patent(s) when it is counted as a type of investment into a venture
Investors: identify investment-worthy projects
Large companies: investment and M&A transactions
Commercial banks: IP collateral
Consulting companies and investment banks: technology or startup valuations in M&A transactions
IP management companies and patent offices: Identify high-value patents
Government: Identify high-growth small firms or innovation projects with high potential that need support
OxValue.AI proudly presents a widely accepted and accredited tool to help our clients
to value technology in a manner that is fair and transparent to both parties. The tool was
developed from the VEST project. It is an algorithm that estimates the monetary value of
a technology (pre or post patent grant). It provides a useful new approach to the
appraisal of technology, and an important guide for decision-making in technology
investment, transfer and commercialisation. By combining this with the latest AI
technology, we provide a wide range of services to our clients.
