IP Strategy: Heading for the Boardroom
Wednesday, 29 June 2016
With over 70% of enterprise value now being represented by intangibles, we are beyond the point where IP can be regarded as a specialist subject. There is no doubt that change is on its way. Investors, lenders and insurers are all paying much closer attention to IP risk and value. At the same time intangible asset value driven by M&A, litigation and licensing are now commonplace. That said, General Counsel, Heads of IP and CTOs still comment that IP is not well understood at Board level.
Read Aistemos CEO Nigel Swycher’s recent post on how IP Strategy is more vital than ever to business decisions across an organisation.
Join us for a roundtable discussion on the changing role of IP and IP strategy. Attendance is recommended for those responsible for the convergence of IP and core business strategy. This is categorically not limited to IP specialists, but extends to those involved in the R&D that leads to the creation of IP and the corporate transactions, litigation and licensing that create or protects.
Aistemos roundtables act as a catalyst for evolution and a focal point for the development of best practice.
3rd floor, 90 Long Acre, London WC2E 9RA
17:30 Prompt start of roundtable discussions. We’ll be discussing the following issues:
- Is intellectual property recognised by boards as an asset class deserving of C-suite attention?
- What changes are likely to occur in the next 5 years to corporate reporting of IP and IP strategy?
- What are the key elements of an IP strategy that will transform IP from a cost to profit centre?
- What data and analytics need to underpin IP strategy, and how should they be presented?
18:30 Drinks (and a continuation of discussions)
