About the Inventor

Abelow self-funded and privately created new Expandiverse "system change technology" because it is clear that our "system" grows the climate crisis, failed ti prepare for the Covid-19 pandemic or heal it worldwide, and continues global problems like inequality, chronic diseases and the needs of disadvantaged people everywhere. As we face overwhelming challenges, Dan's goal is to create new ways to fix our "system" before it breaks us.

The Expandiverse is Dan Abelow's latest IP. His lifetime inventions have been cited 4,100 times, and his previous patents were licensed by over 550 companies. Dan holds degrees from Harvard and the Wharton School.

After he sold his previous patent portfolio Abelow had to decide whether to retire, or bet it all on a decades-long project to solve humanity's biggest challenges. 

The Expandiverse is a new kind of innovation that corporate R&D and profit-first investors did not fund while Dan created the Expandiverse. As a result, the Expandiverse is self-funded. This gave it the freedom to decide the best "system," which Dan believes will put people-first and raise everyone to the top.

While capitalism remains the system, the Expandiverse produces different results than the inequality produced today.

Dan Abelow has never sued anyone for patent infringement, but his name was connected to some patent infringement lawsuits filed by others. Abelow sold his previous patent portfolio in 2004 to an Intellectual Ventures company who licensed many leading companies. Intellectual Ventures divested these patents to Webvention and Lodsys who used their patent ownership to license companies, and they sued some companies for patent infringement. Their lawsuits named the "Abelow patents" that they owned, and they filed the lawsuits. Dan Abelow is an independent technology creator who has never sued anyone for patent infringement.

The U.S. Patent Office is where new technology is judged and certified as a real innovation. Patent examiners cite the technology that is first, to prevent new applicants from re-patenting existing inventions.

What happens when new applicants try to patent what the Expandiverse created first? In 2017 U.S. patent examiners cited Expandiverse IP more than any other Intellectual Property when they reviewed new patent applications.

Tech leaders cite the Expandiverse repeatedly

What does big tech's R&D do? Its leading companies invest billions to create and patent the technologies they will need to lead tomorrow's digital economy. When they cite technology that's in their bullseye, they cite Expandiverse IP (Intellectual Property) again and again.

The average patent is cited just 3 to 6 times. Out of every million patents, only 100 patents are cited more than 100 times. The Expandiverse's 1,759 citations are already 17X larger than that elite group, and its citations are led by tech leaders.


A New Option: An ESG Personal Solutions Metaverse Economy that is Led by People

New "VISIBLE Hand of the Market" replaces "inequality capitalism"

Today's "inequality capitalism" still reflects Adam Smith's "INVISIBLE hand of the market" from his 1776 milestone work, The Wealth of Nations. 

The Expandiverse evolves capitalism to a "people-decided VISIBLE hand of the market." Each person chooses their goals, which creates People-First Capitalism. Responsive companies deliver the world people choose, and drive RISE's new ESG Personal Solutions Economy. 

People-First Capitalism is simple. If a company does not help users reach their goals, the company is digitally invisible to those people.

Monopoly companies have high costs because they are built to serve the whole market. If 5%, 15% or 25% of their markets leave them, they are no longer profitable and their market value will crash.

Thus, people-first companies could win. In addition, people-first employees want to deliver improving lives and societies that include everyone, so this people-first attitude decides the talent war as well as market shares.

In People-First Capitalism companies still sell the products and earn the profits, but for the first time in history, people get the goals they want and believe are right.

Today's system ignores crucial goals that people want, like ending the climate crisis, health, economic inclusion and diversity. 

Goals like health, sustainability, prosperity and inclusion could be visibility requirements for trillions of dollars in transactions. If this makes people-first companies the world's most powerful economic forces, they can also change politics.

Companies that continue destroying the planet can be shown only enough data to make them change. Companies that join this people-first economy will know what it takes to sell the products and lives wanted, so they can grow their market share — while each person's privacy is protected and the surveillance economy ended.
