Who are we?
PL Brake is a one-of-a-kind inventor's company, established April 1 1995 by Lars Christensen. The company is the first of its kind based on the "no cure - no pay" principle. This means that the PL Brake staff does not get paid until the projects they participate in start generating turnover and profits. The main reason for choosing this principle is that any R&D process is costly in terms of wages, until a product can be marketed and starts making a profit. Using the "no cure - no pay" principle, multiple products can be started. Profits are shared fairly among the involved parties.
PL Brake is also the administrator of Panel of Inventors Worldwide (PIW), a forum meant to create optimum conditions for inventors to spend their time and energy on what they do best – creating and inventing. Our mission is to pair off innovators with businesspeople to create successful, sustainable enterprises.
What do we offer inventors?
We offer assistance to inventors. Practical experience shows that a lot of inventors find multitasking hard to do. The administrative side of things often act as a drain on the inventor's time and energy, leaving less time open for the actual creative work, thus acting as a block. A lot of inventors are practial people, with little or no financial knowledge or training. They can benefit vastly from PL Brake ressources and competences, letting us help with such issues as may be outside the inventor's scope.
The PL Brake philosophy
PL Brake puts environmental issues before everything else. We do this by only using environmentally friendly or sustainable components in our products. If an environmentally friendly component or product is an impossibility, a recycling system must be set up, along the lines of bottle/can recycling in Denmark.
PL Brake places a percentage of its turnover in a Third World Fund, making the money available for inventors in TWC for education and training, possibly for college access in other countries. This will enable them to help their native countries, as well as gaining them entry into the Panel of Inventors Worldwide´s knowledge base.
The PL Brake future
We aim for a future in which PL Brake becomes an administrative company with the basic function of collecting, organising and administering a network of knowledge and intellectual property rights, giving PL Brake the optimum position, both financially, politically, legally and environmentally. This may only be done by creating and maintaining networks of both knowledge and relations.
