OTTAWA—September 13, 2017—The intelliFLEX Innovation Alliance (www.intelliflex.org) continued to grow and diversify its membership over the summer with progressive product companies and the professional services they need to succeed.

Authentic or Not (www.authenticornot.com) is a patented product platform that gives manufacturers and brands the ability to connect with their customers regardless of where the merchandise was purchased around the globe. It is bridging the physical and digital worlds by enabling products with the ability to send and receive digital information. This includes encryption which stops counterfeiting. Anyone can simply hover a smartphone enabled with near field communications (NFC) over a product and see product authentication and unique digital experiences instantly, without installing an app. Authentic or Not’s microchips do not require a battery source and can withstand machine washing, dryer and dry cleaning cycles.

Founder and CEO Ahmer Beg and his team are always looking to learn about NFC manufacturers and new printable electronic materials that are coming to market. If you are a manufacturer or brand, they would be happy to connect and show you how their patented technology can solve problems in the industry and open new creative marketing strategies.

Laipac Technology (www.laipac.com) was founded in 1999 by Canadian entrepreneurs Maria C. Pacini and Diego Lai. The vision of Laipac was simple, even at its founding – provide peace of mind to customers by crafting the absolute best, most reliable, and easiest-to-use GPS asset trackers and geolocators on the market. Today, Laipac Technology has become an industry leader in the field of GPS tracking, and has expanded its scope to cover the rapidly growing Internet of Things (IoT), with real-time asset tracking and people monitoring services and products. The company’s latest product is The Look Watch – the world’s first IoT-enabled standalone smartwatch, which expands intelliFLEX’s reach into consumer wearables.

Diego and his team have extensive experience exporting abroad and accessing global markets, including making the most of international trade shows to make valuable business contacts. They are available to help other intelliFLEX Members with foreign market access and with trademarks for intellectual property protection. In return, they just want to spread the word about The Look Watch.

MBM Intellectual Property Law LLP (www.mbm.com) is a dynamic and progressive intellectual property law firm with vast experience in emerging technologies, including printable, flexible and hybrid electronics. Technology areas MBM could help other intelliFLEX Members protect may include: telecommunications (connectivity, battery, antenna, power management), sensors, displays, smart textiles (flexible, moulded, multilayer, etc.), 3D printing and related technologies and many more.

MBM’s core team of partners is supported by experienced and highly specialized patent and trademark agents with diverse scientific backgrounds and advanced degrees for an in-depth comprehension of our industry’s leading technologies and inventions. The firm represents clients on a global scale, managing international patent and trademark portfolios for various types of businesses including startups, universities, SMEs and Fortune 500 companies. Nothing is too small or too big – MBM is a one-stop-shop for a full range of IP services, dedicated to the printable, flexible and hybrid electronics and advanced manufacturing industries.

“From growing startups to established SMEs and professional services firms, we continue to build a diverse membership of organizations that have vital expertise and experience to help their fellow intelliFLEX Members gain crucial market advantage,” said Peter Kallai, President and CEO of intelliFLEX.
