Vator Splash Spring 2016
 cohort Datanovo finds prior arts to every patent instantly. Prior art is anything that shows an invention is old or obvious. Companies use prior arts to invalidate frivolous patents and show that those innovations already exist long before. Companies also use prior arts (or a lack thereof) to show why their products are not obvious variations but truly cutting-edge technologies. Prior art is what stands between just an idea and true invention. It’s the holy grail in intellectual property.

Among the judges were Jed Katz (Managing Director, Javelin Venture Partners,), Josh Elman (Partner, Greylock), Paul Arnold (Partner, Switch VC), Mark Goldstein (Managing Partner, Efficient Capacity), Cindy Padnos (Managing partner, Illuminate Ventures)
