BK INVESTOR NETWORK
Statistics indicate that inventions contribute to boosting the economy and contribute to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the country. Recognizing the importance of innovation and invention, universities invest human and financial resources into research activities. However, the products of research departments often struggle to find a common voice with the market reality because researchers tend to focus on product development rather than listening to and understanding market needs.
