Patent Rank is a pioneer in the patent valuation and intellectual property management field. We provide superior data and network dynamics in a way that no one else can. With our Patent Rank algorithm, we are able to assign a Patent Rank score to every patent within the entire universe of United States patents and we are able to update this score as the U.S. patent network grows. This has never been done. Patent Rank was founded by Monte J. Shaffer as a result of his dissertation "Entrepreneurial Innovation: Patent Rank and Marketing Science".
