1-Day Course: Valuation of Emerging Technologies (San Diego, CA, United States - December 17, 2018) -


The "Valuation
of Emerging Technologies"
conference has been added to's

The overwhelming value of most early-stage companies resides in their
intellectual assets. However, senior managers of such companies usually
have no idea how to value their inventions. This is unfortunate as the
inability to value intangible assets puts companies at a severe
disadvantage when trying to monetize their discoveries through capital
raises, licensing, joint-ventures or sales.

Inventors, investors, patentees, licensors and licensees must be able to
articulate the value of their patents and emerging technologies.
Otherwise, they will never receive the valuations that they deserve.

This seminar will introduce you to the Patent Valuation Gauntlet (PVG).
In deriving the value of a patent, PVG takes into account commercial
value, assertion value, blocking value, cross-licensing value,
reputational value as well as patent invalidity risks and design around
risks. The PVG worksheet contains more than 500 issues that should be
considered when calculating the value of a patent.

This seminar provides an in-depth review of more than 20
valuation methodologies such as:

  • Cost Method
  • Market Method
  • Income Method
