OxValue.AI, a big data based company, originated from groundbreaking research from the Technology and Management Centre for Development (TMCD),  in University of Oxford, will offer a novel way of determining the monetary value of a technology (pre or post patent grant) to fill a significant gap in existing methods, and potentially creating a decision-making tool for investors.

A variety of methods are currently used to work out what new technologies are worth, from simple financial formulas to highly complex techniques. However, the existing methods have significant drawbacks: they are either subject to assumptions of future income, or rely on subjective assessments, or based on past investment and do not reflect the value of creativity and novelty, or are purely theoretical and cannot be used in practice. This means they tend to have poor predictive power.

OxValue.AI will launch and pioneer a new approach drawing on significant quantities of data. OxValue.AI is designed to commercialise the VEST (Valuation of Early-Stage Technology) Tool, which leverages big data of startup companies and patents, initially in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry. The VEST tool is also an algorithm that can estimate the monetary value of a technology (pre or post patent grant).

VEST was developed in a research project led by Professor Xiaolan Fu – Professor of Technology and International Development, University of Oxford and Chair of OxValue.AI. The researchers created a database that matched all UK start-ups – defined as being less than five years old between 2006 and 2015 – with records of patents granted in the relevant technology fields by the world’s major patent grant offices during the same time period.

The OxValue.AI will provide the service to value technology companies based on how the characteristics of the patents, the characteristics of the companies themselves, and the market into which the technology was introduced explained variability in their ultimate value. The model was able to explain around 85% of the variations in the value of technologies owned by the start-ups in the database and will now be used to support companies in doing their own evaluations. The founding members including Professor Xiaolan Fu, the director of the TMCD, as the Chair of the Board, Professor Diego Sánchez-Ancochea, Head of Oxford Department of International Development, and Board Member of the company, and Professor Yu Xiong, Associate Dean International at University of Surrey, and Managing Director for the company.

‘The model has already proven itself to have a highly accurate predictive power, especially for technologies at an early stage of commercialisation,’ said Professor Fu, Chair of OxValue.AI. ‘It also uses completely objective data, which is a significant improvement on existing methods.’

The International Investment and Innovation Forum

OxValue.AI will be launched during the International Investment and Innovation Forum taking place via Zoom on Friday 25th June 2021 in partnership with openbusinesscouncil.org.
