The decision to “make” or “buy” is one of, if not, the most important decisions that corporate decision makers have to make when it comes to developing ground-breaking technology. This is the decision that can set the tone of success or loss of a company in a technology race that could define the next decades of an industry.
In this webinar, we will analyse such a decision made by Amazon Inc. to “buy” Zoox Inc. Patent data retrieved from patents belonging to the technology field of Autonomous Driving were studied and analysed in order to explain – why Amazon decided to acquire Zoox for approx. $1.2 billion! We will also discuss other unicorn companies in this field that would make for great acquisition targets.
Since it is a common practice to file for patents much ahead of actual product development/roll-out, analysing patent data can help us in finding the crémé de la crémé of innovation leaders. Be it a small, obscure/unheard of company (like Zoox Inc.) that was only a fledgling start-up until a few years ago, or an established automotive OEM (like Volvo Cars) that have made revolutionary advances into a new technology, to generate a viable return on innovation investment on their research expenses they have to file for patents to protect their rights .
During this webinar, the presenters will examine and discuss:
