Hi, I have developed a software that given selfie of a man with beard, you can automatically edit your beard. The software is photo-realistic and works very well. I would like to sell this to razor's companies to develop marketing applications. I have a list of several companies that might be interested, but I would like to how who should I contact and how should I contact them? Any ideas are welcome.
Most companies these days have people responsible for external innovation and business developement. Somebody with the tittle 'licensing' might also be appropriate. But the key is - never try talking to R&D or marketing people and make sure you have a solid value proposition to offer.
Some times companies have an official portal or form you could submit for their review. If not, using professional intermediary is a better way than to knock the front door.
