Protecting your innovation starts by filing an Pre-Qualification Questionnaire.
This will provide us with basic information about your product or invention, and it will help us evaluate the commercial potential.
Following the information that you provide, we will also evaluate a patent filing. Once we will receive you Pre-Qualification Questionnaire, a Xegate Business Development Manager can begin working with you to asses and finally commercialize your invention by patenting, an industry license, a start-up company, or other means

Submit Invention Disclosure Form Early and Often
We strongly encourage Researchers to submit the Pre-Qualification Questionnaire before any public disclosures (lecture, posters, presentations, etc.) that may adversely affect the patentability of an invention. However, even if you have already disclosed your idea, it is still possible to receive protection, so we’d still like to hear from you.


If you are interested, please complete our Pre-Qualification Questionnaire form.
