If inventors breakthrough, we all breakthrough

We, Romanians, are used to making do – in technology as in all other parts of life. Solving problems with whatever resources we have at hand is in our nature – which is not always the optimal way forward. But we believe that our inventive side was mostly overlooked and vastly underutilized, historically.


Therefore, we are looking for ways to put together:


  • The drive and technical expertise of the mature generations;
  • The lack of inhibitions and the creativity of the younger generations;
  • The acute need of Romanian economy to jump up on the global value chain.

INVENTIKUS is a cluster of Romanian private companies and institutions with strong Research & Development ethos and objectives. Our goal is to create a scalable system for making good use of the inventive capacity in today’s Romania.
We already started to build that system with educational institutions, private companies, policy makers, other non-profit entities sharing this vision, and – last but not least – independent inventors.

What we do

1.Patenting and Go-to-market assistance

We know that the patenting process (national and international) is complicated and the user experience with relevant institutions is not without a good deal of friction. Therefore we’re able and willing to assist individuals and interested entities in the following stages:

  • Pre-patent: Technology evaluation; patenting potential assessment, Intellectual Property strategy, State-of-the-art research
  • Patenting: Patent request writing and drawing; patent request filing
  • Post-patent: patent monitoring, prototyping
  • Go-to-market: Market analysis, connection to accelerators & funding, Go-to-market strategy

2. R&D on demand services

  • Physics and engineering design
  • CAD, Electronic and PCB design
  • Rapid prototyping – 3D printing, complex manufacturing, testing

3. Education

Inventors Playground, an Inventikus project, is a hands-on workshop for tech design and making. We provide the participants with knowledge, tools and assistance for designing, coding, 3D printing, off-the-shelf parts sourcing and assembly. The project was a finalist at Social Impact Award 2019, taking place under the umbrella of the European Solidarity Corps. Until 2021, two cohorts of future inventors enjoyed this experience.

We are able to create custom programs for high schools and universities and individual students; helping them to understand the inventive process, use relevant tools and create value for themselves and society.
