My Expertise

Competitive Intelligence

Nowadays, it is a necessity for a company or any person that desire to develop a product to be aware of potential competitors, or substitutes for its developments. For that reason, I focus on the development of surveillance and competitive intelligence reports, that allow to know the principal lines, organizations, universities, companies or researches of your technology or new product, through patent, or paper analysis, benchmarking and other strategic data.  

Industrial Property Strategies

 Once you determine to invest in any project, generic or innovative product, It has to elaborate an industrial property strategy, as a part of the whole planning strategy, in that way I elaborate Freedom To Operate report (FTO), clearance, and patentability analysis, patent prosecution, etc, likewise in order to achieve the best patent strategy to your needs, mainly for the chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. 

Technology and Innovation Management


We are in the fourth generation of technology management systems, called Research, Development and Innovation (RDI). They allow through knowledge, management, and marketing, to detect a poor signal and make it productive. To favor of the success of the products.  

Technology management models are elaborated with the own requirements of each company. 

I have worked in the development of Technology Management System department or areas for Mexican Pharma Companies.
