In this webinar we discuss the advantages of virtual companies as an organisational structure for treatment of collaborative innovation. Two or more innovations are often combined, for example to create a new innovation that comprises the basic components of the first two and starts its own life cycle; filing into a new portfolio that organises families of innovations together; or donation to a new virtual company. Virtual companies can be used to organise new innovations into portfolios, to hold certain technology types, or for specific geographical application.
When an innovation is recorded onto the blockchain, irrefutable evidence exists of the time and date the idea was conceived. In the blockchain-based, cryptographically hashed record, Ideation keeps a record of all innovations, NDAs, licences, and virtual companies in the blockchain, without compromising the technology.
