External Submissions to IBM
If you wish to submit for consideration an idea, patent, technology, or business proposal relating to IBM products and services, please see our External Submissions website. It describes our process for considering external submissions and will provide a single point of contact through which to determine if IBM has an interest in your submission. Please note that all external submissions must be made on a non-confidential basis and are handled electronically.
If you have questions regarding the IBM FOAK program or would like to speak to one of our consultants, please tell us about yourself so that we may direct your inquiry to the most appropriate person.
