Patent-Pilot is a Munich-based patent data analytics startup. With our tool, users can analyze patent law firms and their full client base worldwide. Using big data and machine learning algorithms, we support patent attorneys in finding new clients and deepening the relationship with their existing clients.

Imagine Amazon knew what their customers are buying in other online shops. Or imagine Apple knew who will be ordering a smartphone soon in Germany. It would be a game changer. We deliver such kind of information for patent law firms.

Our product will be available soon and we need you in order to launch as quickly as possible.
