IP Redux: Patent Licensing to Entrepreneurs
SKTA Innopartners is hosting its first “IP Redux” event on April 21, 2016, at the SKTA Innopartners headquarters from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Intellectual Property (IP) Redux gives companies and research organizations the opportunity to promote IP licensing to entrepreneurs and investors. The interest in IP licensing from both parties can lead to teams forming to externally commercialize the technology.
“IP Redux is the first event of its kind to have companies help entrepreneurs use their IP,” says Angel Orrantia, Senior Director of Business Development & Marketing at SKTA Innopartners. “Universities have similar events to commercialize IP, but to our knowledge no industry leading companies have participated in this type of showcase.”
Companies and research institutions will be provided an individual time slot to introduce their IP with licensing terms along with a signage presentation table to discuss in detail with interested entrepreneurs and investors.
The advantage for entrepreneurs is listening to IP pitches and network with other entrepreneurs to form commercialization teams. These teams will start with granted patents, giving them a leg-up on other recently formed companies. Also, entrepreneurs can obtain quick answers to legal questions from top corporate and IP attorneys in the valley.
Investors have the opportunity to network with entrepreneurs, Innopartners portfolio founders, strategic investors, financial investors and meet teams as they form. It is a chance to get to know the Innopartners team, including EIRs, and its unique accelerator model to explore potential co-investment or follow-on investment opportunities
Join us for IP Redux and start a new venture using granted patents. For more information about the event and how to attend, please click here
