About MindMatters Solutions

About MindMatters Solutions

MindMatters was founded in the late 1990’s by seasoned executives with engineering, product development, and intellectual property backgrounds from such organizations as IBM, GE, and Carnegie Mellon. Initially backed by venture capital, MindMatters has maintained profitably and growth since its inception.

MindMatters Solutions is focused on maximizing our clients’ innovation and new product development potential while helping them develop, safeguard and manage their intellectual property assets.

While MindMatters Solutions is an enterprise software developer, we learned a long time ago that to be successful, our solutions and services must go far beyond the software itself.  It starts with a tremendous amount of human interaction between our experienced staff and the representatives of our clients to understand their business and the goals, objectives and requirements of their innovation, product development and intellectual property programs. It’s a combination of the experience and expertise we offer.  It’s the upfront discussions, fact finding, due diligence, and the sharing of best practices which are all components of our proprietary implementation program that delivers innovation, product development and intellectual property solutions unparalleled in the industry today.

Today, our INNOVATOR software solutions are deployed to hundreds of thousands users and have been proven across a variety of industries, business processes, and geographies – national and international.  We stand proud of our growing client list of premier, world-class companies benefiting from our services and the INNOVATOR software solutions. These accomplishments are a real testament to the dedication, capacity and superb capabilities of our team.
