Using LinkedIn As Your Connection
Source To Licensees and Investors
Benjamin Harrison
Open Innovation Product Developer
Why is LinkedIn so important to inventors trying to find potential licensees or investors? LinkedIn is an amazing tool for both researching and reaching out to companies and it will play a major role in the future of Open Innovation.
  • LinkedIn is where the “decision makers” are
  • Direct Outreach on LinkedIn is 4x more effective than cold calling
  • Provides users the ability to control how you are perceived
  • Can be done anytime, great for busy people
  • Great for overcoming timezone difficulties / language barriers
  • Provides opportunity to make effortless connections with key players within targeted companies
