Technology (UPN: 31)
|Biopolymers-based advanced meltblown manufacturing process and products|
|Organisation Region||North America|
|Overview||An advanced manufacturing process with a robust patent portfolio and trademarks for long-term value. High value end meltblown non-woven products for scalable niche markets. Microbial control platforms integrated to specialty non-woven fiber products (roll-goods or finished products on an OEM basis to large customers).|
The technology and product platforms are based on two fundamental principles:
Other important considerations :
The Innovator business model is predicated on the below strategic and tactical principals:
The Innovator is very focused on going to market with great rapidity. So, if there is an application at hand that it believe it can address, the Innovator development timelines are no longer than 6-12 months. So, with all transparency, the Innovator is not interested in a 2-3 year go-to-market strategy. Everything the Innovator does, it does not do at a laboratory scale but with the full expectation of going from ideation to manufacturing ramp in established timelines within a 1 year timeframe.

Meltblown technology is fairly mature; however the Innovator has modified this technology to include some very unique and novel characteristics for very specific market demands (biodegradable, bioresorbable, antimicrobial and infection control characteristics, etc). Its manufacturing line is narrow width which allows to manufacture products that are very much outside the realm of traditional convertors. Also, unlike traditional non-woven manufacturers the Innovator supplies the rolls goods or the actual end product to the end customer depending on application, supply chain logistics and market dynamics.
Strong IP depending on the application and the products the Innovator manufactures (US protection at the current time).
|Innovator||A non-woven manufacturing company that is laser focused on scalable applications with a specific urgency level in market areas which are underserved because current solutions either don’t exist or the incumbent products are completely unsatisfactory. The Innovator works with large customers along stage-gate milestones which result in an product order stream at the conclusion of the development project. The Innovator only tackles a small number of these projects on an annual basis in order to devote its creativity and focus.|
