IPBC Global Conference
We were delighted to head to Seattle in November 2021 as Gold Sponsors of IPBC Global event hosted by IAM. The conference was full of thought-provoking plenary addresses, panel discussions, boot camps, masterclasses and more. All of which aimed to unearth some of the challenges IP teams face and continue to develop world-class value creation strategies.
We hosted a panel discussion on the Return on Investment of Patent Portfolios, delving into how you can calculate the value of your patent assets and communicate that insight to the rest of the organisation. Patents can provide business advantages in different ways – but they don’t come cheap and they are not risk free. Understanding a portfolio’s value allows for the development of strategies that will provide the maximum return on investment. Our session covered:
- Understanding the patents you own and why you have them.
- Effective valuation techniques.
- Tracking trends and planning for the future.
