Business Model

Technology Evaluation
We judge the ideas and initial endeavours of health care workers, researchers, and small and medium-sized enterprises, from the point of view of intellectual property strategy, development planning, regulatory strategy, financing plans, exit, etc.

We create an appropriate team, and develop the medical device in an optimal environment.

We expand the business in the United States, Europe and Asia through a rich network.

As well as generating capital gains and royalties as consideration for undertaking development and commercialization, we return the profits firmly to the inventors.
