Acquisition of Intellectual Property (IP)

Through our IP acquisition program, SolCon Capital provides an opportunity for young researchers to monetize their ideas and inventions while retaining ownership and control. We offer a fair and transparent process that respects the rights of the creators while ensuring that their research is brought to market in a timely and effective manner.
