The Sage Innovation Programme is a process to identify innovations and initiate new projects to bring great ideas to Sage customers worldwide. We invite existing Sage suppliers, new potential suppliers, research institutes, universities and individual inventors to share their innovations with us. The focus of this programme is to commercialise patented innovations that add value to premium small kitchen appliances and coffee-related products.
Generally, if an innovation is accepted by Sage, the owner and Sage will enter into a royalty-based licensing agreement. This process enables innovators to get their inventions to market without spending significant time and money on their own product development. However, the more a product innovation has been developed towards mass manufacturing (such as a working prototype), the faster Sage can evaluate the innovation and potentially take that innovation to market.
We invite you to propose ideas, solutions, new technologies, products and/or services that you believe would delight Sage’s customers wherein you own the intellectual property to that innovation. The best opportunities to submit to Sage are those innovations that are protected by issued patents in three jurisdictions: United States, European Union and China.
Submit your innovation: email@example.com
Initially, please submit only non-confidential material. Following a demonstration of your technology, if there is a great fit with Sage we’ll propose a mutual non-disclosure agreement to safeguard the interests of both parties.
By submitting your proposal there is no obligation on the part of Sage to engage in any relationship (commercial or otherwise) with the party making the submission.
