Ventures

Savant typically partners with early stage ventures if it sees the value in the venture’s prospects, inventor capabilities and potential commercial product offering. While Savant may have multiple stages to its approach, some may inventors partner with Savant further along the business life cycle than others. Savant systematically de-risks these partnered ventures and gets them ready for commercialisation and investment.
