Instant Insights into Company Innovation

ktMINE has developed an app that provides instant insight to a company’s innovation movements. Innovation represents a company’s most valuable asset, yet management goes out of their way to hide innovation activities. While other data sources exist (Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg, S&P), this is the first time an app has been created to answer the question: what is a company’s current capabilities, future capabilities, and innovation activities?

Fast & Easy Research for Data-Driven Content

With ktMINE, quickly uncover new insights, tell untold stories, and find new angles about companies that other journalists/publications may have missed. Access innovation & intangible asset data all in one place for fast and easy research. Coupled with the Alerts feature, stay on top of innovations in your beat with direct updates on companies, industries or technologies.
