Although investors have not traditionally focused on IP as a primary driver of value, that has changed as the search for yield expands to new markets. While IP has traditionally served to protect markets, it also offers the potential for significant returns if correctly managed. Because the ultimate test for converting IP to value is often a trial before a judge or jury, we will demonstrate how patent licensing and litigation creates opportunities to unlock revenue streams from IP assets in portfolio companies. Investors can apply this focused lens to align their IP strategy with their business strategy and set both up for maximum ROI.

Discussion topics:

  • Developments, trends, and forward-looking predictions in IP law and strategy
  • A holistic framework for converting IP from a cost center to an EBITDA driver
  • Tools to align IP strategy with business strategy
  • Pitfalls that PE should avoid in the quest for IP value
  • Informative and entertaining demonstrations of how to create value from IP
