Cooperative commercialization brings an innovation to market with a partner - whether that’s a company or an investor (or both). Recent economic uncertainty has been particularly bad for this type of commercialization.
If you are trying to commercialize your innovation with a partner, economic uncertainty is doubly punishing. Trying to license your idea to a commercial partner is much more difficult when that company isn’t certain where to put its money. Should it hold off on investing in new technology? Or should it try to take advantage of market upheaval to launch a new product?
Other commercial partnerships also suffer under uncertainty. Joint ventures require two companies to be aligned on innovation and new product development. And we’ve all heard about the reduction in VC (venture capital) funding for startups.
Increasing international economic uncertainty is all over the news. But that doesn’t mean that you should give up on cooperative commercialization.

I’ve given a simple example below. This dashboard shows the rise of China - and specifically, how Chinese companies are rapidly increasing their rate of US patent filings.
If the dashboard doesn’t load quickly, you can also click to view it directly.
What makes this trend particularly striking? The rate of US patent filings by US companies has slowed dramatically. This is another example of geopolitical rivalry playing out in the commercial arena.
