GCCI Announces Alternative to Innovation Outsourcing

Minnesota-based Global Commerce & Communication, Inc. (GCCI) announced today the worldwide expansion plans to help businesses maximize their return on research and development investment. Leveraging the global reach of GCCI's expanding intellectual property network, NewIdeaTrade.com (http://www.newideatrade.com), a division of GCCI, will allow companies and individuals from around the world the ability to buy and sell ideas, inventions and patents as well as art, crafts and other intellectual property to the global market.

Smaller companies that are not able to devote substantial amounts of resources to research and development will now be able to locate and license inventions, arts and crafts listed on NewIdeaTrade.com. Even larger businesses will save the time and expense of developing new products and technologies on their own, by buying or licensing innovations listed on this trading community.

"Small businesses and innovators often find it difficult to reach the global market because the traditional transfer of intellectual property is complicated, costly, fragmented, and slow," said GCCI spokesperson Neil Armand. "By providing a global forum for businesses, innovators and investors to find each other, NewIdeaTrade.com breaks down traditional geographic, industrial, and marketing barriers, and simplifies and speeds up the process," continued Armand.

GCCI plans to set up regional offices in all five continents and launch localized versions of its online forum in major languages of the world.
