Ocean Tomo Venture Development allows operating company clients to capture and guide emerging third party solutions through an outsourced venture capital service platform specific to the client’s interests. Cross functional Ocean Tomo teams identify diligence and direct client investments into a small portfolio of venture backed companies that promise future growth technologies. Ocean Tomo professionals direct portfolio investments to maximize the opportunity for future product, service or acquisition opportunities. Client returns are measured both through innovation access as well as financial gain. Low return R&D expense dollars are converted to high return capital gains and IP rights. Ocean Tomo limits its Venture Development clients by technology vertical to assure first look opportunities.
Ocean Tomo’s License Compliance is aimed at improving client revenue streams related to licensing arrangements. During resource allocation, organizations often overlook the importance of monitoring compliance with contractual arrangements, understated revenues linked to licensing arrangements are frequently missed, and license management – the controls and procedures necessary to facilitate accurate royalty reporting – is all but neglected. These disregarded mechanisms are nonetheless vital for both increasing returns on research and design and for enhancing an organization’s shareholder value. As globalization and technological advances create environments where proactive attitudes are necessary, licensing matters have become a growing concern to national and international companies, as well as to universities and research foundations.
