In terms of new technology acceptance, Licensing is the most preferred business model as acceptance and approval is often fast tracked, with all parties, especially supply chain management as a new vendor. Completing the approval cycle is a daunting task, especially when it requires cross-functional acceptance from organizations such as engineering, user experience, marketing and innovation strategy. Once the technology is approved, the next hurdle is vendor approval, as manufacturing presents different complications. The simplest and quickest path to production is license arrangement. JLM's focuses in licensing technology primarily for European companies with revenues averaging over $25M+, startups, major research institutions.
THE MOVIE “BLINK OF AN EYE”
Ford Motor Company want to license the intermittent windshield wiper but the inventor wanted to manufacturer the product . The point to make new technology approved is hard enough but license deal can move the process much faster. The second battle is vendor approval and which requires an audit financial and manufacturing. The Fortune 500 have their supply chain approved vendors Ford stated on most cases DOD ( dead on arrival ) for a new start up to be approved as a supplier in the movie “Blink of An Eye.”
Windshield wipers inspire Hollywood movie
For two decades, Robert Kearns waged an obsessive crusade against the auto industry, which he accused of stealing his invention. It destroyed his marriage, brought on a mental breakdown and may have cost him millions.
All because of a dispute over a humble piece of equipment: the intermittent windshield wiper.
Not exactly the stuff of Hollywood drama, you say? Veteran film producer Marc Abraham would beg to differ. He found Kearns’ story so captivating that instead of hiring a director to bring it to the screen, he did the job himself.
“There was something about this story that I felt so personally committed to,” said Abraham, who makes his directorial debut with “Flash of Genius,” starring Greg Kinnear as Kearns. The movie, distributed by Universal Pictures, was shown during the recent Traverse City Film Festival and opens in theaters Oct. 17.
“I’ve always had a lot of respect for average working people,” said Abraham, a Kentucky native who drove a beer truck, waited tables and sold baby pictures door-to-door while trying to break into show business. “Bob wasn’t an ordinary man; he was probably a genius. But as a person, his lifestyle, his family scale, he was just an average guy. So I felt like I understood that.”
Kearns died of cancer in 2005 at age 77, four decades after perfecting the intermittent wiper design in his basement workroom. The one-time engineering instructor at Wayne State University in Detroit received numerous patents for his mechanism.
Inspiration in the blink of an eyeThe idea came to him from the irregular blinking of his left eye, which eventually went blind after being struck by a champagne cork on his wedding night.
Kearns took his gadget to Ford Motor Co., which initially showed interest; its engineers had been trying to develop a similar system. But he never reached a licensing agreement with Ford or other automakers, partly because he insisted on forming his own company to manufacture the wipers.
Ford began turning out cars with intermittent wipers in 1969, and competitors soon did likewise. Kearns sued Ford in 1978, claiming patent infringement, and took on Chrysler Corp. four years later.
He ultimately filed lawsuits against 26 companies, including General Motors Corp. Most were tossed out of court, although he won judgments against Ford and Chrysler that ultimately brought him more than $30 million. The point to make sign a license agreement which is hard enough .

Carbonscape process ability to deliver “battery ready” graphite from GDTC carbon by product from their process of tire conversion.
This is game changer when its completed GDTC and Carbonscape sign license agreement. A business case US needed $350 a ton for th carbon in order to develop a plant . North American market reaching out to build 25 + plants with cost $12-15 million a plant . JLM is marketing agent for both Carbonscape & GDTC- CarbonScape Signed MOU to license Carbonscape patent technology to convert carbon to graphite . Graphite pure 4-9’s to 5-9’s has a spread buy well over $1,000 a ton. One plant today is design for 20,000 tons of tires that can product 5,000 tons of graphite . The plants are modular so have capacity to double or triple the output

St Davids, PA
John Lyons Co-founder estimates revenue over a billion on thermal electric microfluidic device that captures heat energy and converts to electric power.
The heat absorption panel is simply replaced with the Sparatech panel.
The benefit to the server farm operator are immense. Our system generates DC electrical power. This power can be used to drive coolant pumps, fans, etc. Excess energy can be used for power storage in a battery backup mode. This system eliminates entire refrigerant systems and large liquid pumps/air heat exchangers. This fact virtually makes the cooling system more affordable by reducing capital installation equipment and space costs.
