The Montages founders draw from decades of experience in both financial markets and high tech to apply the mature and managed processes of wealth management and investment banking to innovation management.
Montages applies newest innovations in software modeling directly to the business problem of managing innovations. In this setup, Montages own investments in their open-source framework XOCL has direct positive feedback effects on its business capability and maturity to support other companies innovations based on major mainstream software frameworks such as EMF, GMF, or OCL. These frameworks form the base components of XOCL itself, leading to a self accelerating cycle of operational excellence in innovation investment services.
Based on this self accelerating cycle of innovation, Montages slowly expands its offering from Open Source sponsorings to patent investment management and research partnership institutionalization, two areas Montages has built experience over the last 10 years.
