Patent Exclusivity | Trade Secrets | Initmate Knowledge | Tightknit Team
Next to a trade secret, which best protects a process or formulation, a patent and extensions that broaden the patent
provide a LEGAL "barrier" with which others entities must contend. We have exclusive rights to patents and any extension
related to the initial patent.
Over the years, we have acquired knowledge that we now hold as trade secrets regarding preservation.
Intimate Knowledge: The key people involved in this entire venture have a worked on this technology,
have tested this technology and have successfully presented this technology to critical entities, which are not easily impressed.
Thus, there is a "rolodex" of contacts and a history of success.
There are core teams of senior professionals within the organizations who, in different relationships, have working histories,
which exceed 6 years with at least one person. There are no unknown members in the core group, which is committed to
the development of Air+ Preservation. In essence, the team is handpicked through value and contributions to
Senior Wisdom: Collectively, we have all "gone into our
separate garages numerous times and all come out with numerous products." Collectively, we have all worked with our
own money. Collectively, we are not starry-eyed yahoos or geeks. We are, after all, savvy entrepreneurs with senior
business wisdom. We have owned and "been owned" by others. We fully understand commitment, risk, opportunity cost,
success, and even failure. We have learned on our own money, how to win.
