IP For License
At Alternative Packaging Solutions (APS), our mission is identifying and de-risking the next wave of launch-ready packaging innovations for premier FMCG players.
We follow five steps to de-risk new technology so that your business is ready to launch:
IP Scouting and Acquisition
APS acquires IP for technologies our experts believe in. We work closely with innovators in and outside of traditional category channels to identify and vet new technologies.
Our legal team secures multi-vector IP protection across all Tier 1 markets globally to ensure long-term competitive advantage.
Our network of best-in-class package engineers and designers perfects and tests the original technology to make it production-ready.
Investment in Pilot
We partner with leading packaging suppliers and invest high-quality pilot tooling, enabling you to immediately start scaleup after licensing.
As soon as pilot tools are operational and the first article items are rolling out, we are ready to license the IP to FMCG customers across all relevant categories. Customers pay the pre-negotiated royalty for the duration of the license. Licenses are defined by category, region, and timeframe.
