Intellectual Property (IP) Strategy & IP Asset Management for Science Ventures. IP Supports Ventures & Growth

A well-designed & executed IP Strategy can mitigate risk and drive enterprise value throughout the lifecycle of the IP. Managing IP is highly specialized and resource intensive. It’s difficult to justify the cost to bring relevant expertise in-house. Similar to investment banking or property management for commercial real estate, it can be valuable to leverage outside experts to manage your IP for optimal results (protect research and provide value to Inventors & Investors).

Founder & Chief Investment Officer, Aventurine Capital Group, LLC and Stan Hanks, General Partner, Technology, Aventurine Capital Group, LLC will share their knowledge and experience having sat at every seat of the table of a new venture, as an inventor, entrepreneur, angel investor, venture capitalist, private equity manager and witness in patent prosecution. Both men will share with you the challenges they faced during their careers and how you can better protect your research and provide greater value to the inventors and investors of your early stage venture. Corporates can also gain insight into how they can revitalize their existing dormant IP for greater usage and value.
