Leading to an IPO on the Tokyo Stock Exchange in October 2018, VALUENEX was established in Tokyo in 2006 as an innovative business and consulting firm transforming large volumes of data into visualization graphics. This visualization enables clients to find information rather than search for it, thereby helping to identify unnoticed patterns and find new inspiration. After spending 15 years as a consultant in the Mitsubishi Research Institute with a focus on his expertise in operations research, intellectual property, and data mining, Dr. Tatsuo Nakamura developed the algorithm that eventually became XLUS TechRadar (now VALUENEXRadar Patents). This panoramic view analytics and research tool provides a radar visualization of document similarities, which is a dramatic innovation in the area of intellectual property.

Now a leader in the industry and with offices in Tokyo, Silicon Valley, and Geneva , VALUENEX's proprietary algorithms have a growing list of users in all fields of business and research, with patent lawyers, portfolio advisers, and data scientists as heavy users, doing analyses in English, Japanese, and Chinese.
