A grand prize winner of the i-Lab 2018 competition, startup Arkyan has released the first version of its web application. The application analyzes the chances of being awarded a patent and compares that information to market studies to help make decisions
The young company also leverages the emergence of the Legal Tech field in the Montpellier Métropole area. Arkyan is the first startup to join the Montpellier Bar Association incubator.
“It was an obvious choice for us to go to the BIC, notably because of their excellent results, and to contact renowned Montpellier research institutes such as LIRMM,” points out the Arkyan CEO. “We benefit from top-quality assistance as well as the vibrant community of digital startups in Montpellier.”
In late September, the company released the first version of its Arkyan Tactics web application, a statistical algorithm based on the same principle (combining patent prediction with market studies), which uses a massive database that is updated constantly. Arkyan has already earned its first customers, including SMEs and one large company, and is currently seeking to hire two people. The next version of its artificial intelligence tool will be released in 2019.
