About Us

Patexia. Where Science, Technology & Business Meet

Founded in 2010 to bring efficiency and transparency to intellectual property, Patexia is an online platform connecting corporations to subject matter experts who help them assess their IP portfolios.

Our Mission. Advancing the Pace of Innovation

Today, intangibles make a large portion of total company market value. By distributing IP problems to a global network of subject matter experts, we help corporations better assess, manage and monetize their IP portfolios.

Experts are responsible for the creation of new ideas, and we believe experts need to be involved in their review. We use our online platform to let experts contribute to improving the IP space while acknowledging and rewarding them for their expertise.

By consulting true experts, we provide a superior method of assessing IP. Inability to confidently evaluate an IP portfolio is a hamper on businesses; by offering more reliable and extensive assessment, we promote efficiency and drive innovation.

Contest. Solve Problems and Earn Money

Experts in our community participate in intellectual property contests submitted by businesses, allowing them to solve real industry problems while earning money, building their reputation and developing industry connections and experience.

Businesses derive great value from Patexia’s scientific community by posting IP studies. If you are a business and would like to work with us, please contact us at

Research. Search and Discover

With powerful search and visualization capabilities, our research tools help individual experts and businesses research and analyze industry trends:

  • Access over 4 million US patents (from 1976 to present)
  • Find more than 3 million US patent applications (from 2001 to present)
  • Search over 20 thousand patent lawsuits (from 2005 to present)
  • Discover the latest industry patent trends and statistics with our visualization tools

Community. Connect and Inform

In our community, experts also showcase their scientific work, follow their interests, voice their opinions on the latest papers and read the latest industry, science and technology news.

Members create their profiles, build their intellectual portfolios (including patents and  research papers) and make personal connections. They also follow other members, interests and organizations to stay informed.

Patexia’s community feed is a unique source for science and technology news, and business updates. Articles are posted by members and Patexia’s staff. Posts include news briefs, analysis and opinion articles,  reviews of papers and patents and status updates.

Connect. Share and Collaborate

Patexia also helps connect businesses with subject matter experts for consulting opportunities (for example, helping firms find expert witnesses for patent infringement cases).
